This is Moe Abdou. I am delighted today to have Srini Pillay join me todiscuss a fascinating topic  this whole notion of fear and unlocking thefear that is prevalent in each one us.
Srini, I really appreciate you joining us this morning.
Thank you very much for having me. I appreciate it.
I want to start by asking you a personal question. You responded to my first email at 4 a.m. and when I asked you about it, you said something tothe effect that I am in a state of flow right now, and I just keep going.
I’m really curious, tell me about that feeling? I read a lot about it. Tell meabout that feeling and maybe we can get into that in a little bit because if a small percentage of the world can get into that state, I think we can beat just an amazing place to live.
The flow state for me has been essential because of the number of things that Ido. What I try to do is anchor my day and behavior to a number of differentthings. I would say that when I’m in the flow state, I feel like I’m in a state of creative flow. I feel like I have a certain amount of flexibility in my thinkinglike I can switch tasks fairly easily.

Is that something that you consciously try to do regularly?
Yes. In some ways I fell into it partly just because of the diversity of myinterest which range all the way from science to music. And partly because of the number of things that I was doing, I felt like I needed to accelerate a lot of what I was doing.Through my understanding of how the brain works and human psychology, andunderstanding that a lot of the fast processing is actually done unconsciously, I
