“Creativity Unleashed...”The seminal psychological work on creativity unleashed, this book investigates & illuminates the satisfying power of total immersion in work.
Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's famous investigations of "optimal experience" have revealed that what makes an experience genuinely satisfying is a state of consciousness called flow. During flow, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life. In this new edition of his groundbreaking classic work, Csikszentmihalyi demonstrates the ways this positive state can be controlled, not just left to chance. Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience teaches how, by ordering the information that enters our consciousness, we can discover true happiness and greatly improve the quality of our lives.

In the past I have tried to make games out of boring day jobs in order to make the time pass faster. Sometimes it works others not so much. I can get bored easily and that is only if the activity I'm participating in is boring or is giving me no type of feedback. Who doesn't experience this??
An interesting read for anyone interested in how to enjoy themselves in any type of situation, whether they want to be there or not.more
