I have started reading Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and though I am only a few pages into it, I am blown away by how profound a work it is. The book explores the question: When do people feel most happy? Csikszentmihalyi figures if we can answer that question then maybe we can order our lives so that happiness plays a larger role in it.

 

I’ll share more from the book in the coming weeks, but as we conclude the last practice week of the cycle and prepare for re-test week I’ll leave you with this: “The best moments,” Csikszentmihalyi writes, “usually occur when a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.”
