Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Today I’m feeling stuck with no sense that I’m making progress with anything.

This blocked state led me to explore thinkers who have studied what being creative means and, perhaps even more importantly, what makes us happy.

Higher income and personal wealth don’t create this state of bliss. As Mihaly Csikszentmihaly (pronounced chick-sent-me-high-eee) explains in his TED talk, it’s all about finding something that helps you get into a state where time seems to stand still and you feel fully immersed in a state of flow. The nearest to reaching this ideal place is being in control and getting stimulated  – I’m working on it!!
