State of flow
Muse #334 - it is magical
The last two days have been extremely busy at work. I spent a ton of time preparing for a teaching session today that generally went well. But looking back on the last two days I feel it went like that. Like a snap of my fingers. Effortless. In a blink of an eye.
I am guessing that is how flow feels like. When one is engrossed in the work you do and the work is something that is done with cognitive ease and feels effortless, time passes by in a blink.
I just wish that every day were like this. But generally, it comes down to less than 10% of the days at best. The rest of the days die a slow dreary death with no life in them. But that is life. If only I can find a way for every day to be like today. That would be magic.
But now I suddenly feel drained. Perhaps the hours of presenting, talking, and staying in a dopamine-induced state of alertness are now taking their toll. Ah, humans!
