How did you end up being an expert on the subject?
I set out to get to know Flow and promote it because I was able to combine all my previous skills into a bundle. I have a degree in business, education and sports, and I have gained work experience in the world of education, wellness, consulting and also real-life games. Flow and delving into it is a natural outcome and total for me when I combine my skills and interests.
Last year, I wrote a book on flow ( Flow Mode)) in which I wanted to largely brighten up what I learned and accumulated knowledge around the topic.
For whom, for what situations and why is a deeper understanding of Flow important?
Is there anyone for whom flow would not be important? My answer is “no”.
Flow helps you do things with quality, faster and better whether it’s about doing, producing, or achieving something. When you want to do something good, whether it’s a hobby, a sport, or doing art, understanding and getting to Flow is helpful.
Flow also helps to do things better at work, although flow is less often associated with work compared to sports and the arts. I think the importance of Flow at work is especially important because a lot of life is spent on it. In the field of work, understanding Flow benefits both employers, employees, customers, and those close to employees.
In a broader picture, flow helps to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life. Understanding it teaches a lot about humanity, the human mind, the human body, and how and with what skills to make things more fluid, and how to eliminate friction again. I think this is important, and I argue that knowing these skills in one thing helps to apply the use of the skill elsewhere. For example, if you know how to focus on golf, this will help you transfer that skill and mind control to something else to do.
