Description

“Peak performance is nothing more or less than getting our biology to work for us rather than against us.” – Steven Kotler A state of flow is an optimal state of consciousness when we both feel our best and perform our best. In this episode, Brian interviews Steven Kotler, one of the world’s leading experts on human performance. Steven shares how to achieve flow and unlock peak performance – those moments in time when the impossible becomes possible. Topics discussed include: why our biology is hardwired for three levels of goals, why practicing distraction management is key and why there is power in invisible skills. YOU WILL LEARN: Why everyone can access flow. How to trigger flow. How to focus and achieve complete concentration.   MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: https://www.stevenkotler.com/ Flow Research Collective https://www.flowresearchcollective.com/radio “The Art of Impossible,” by Steven Kotler “The Rise of Superman,” by Steven Kotler “Flow,” by  Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi   INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE: “Whenever you see people accomplishing the impossible, you tend to see people in a state of flow.” – Steven Kotler “Flow is a massive amplification of skills.” – Steven Kotler “I work for the boss. The boss is who I am yesterday that made my to-do list.” – Steven Kotler “In peak performance, motivation gets us into the game. Learning allows us to continue to play. Creativity - creative problem solving - it's how we steer. And flow, which is a state of optimal performance, is how we turbo-boost the results beyond all reasonable expectation.” – Steven Kotler “If you use the system the way it's designed to be used, you just get farther faster with a lot less fuss.” – Steven Kotler “You can never have too many arrows in your quiver.” – John Barth   https://www.TheBrianBuffiniShow.com http://www.brianbuffini.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brian_buffini Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brianbuffini Twitter: https://twitter.com/brianbuffini Theme Music:  “The Cliffs of Moher” by Brogue Wave
