Go with the flow

A salmon lives in oceans or seas but returns to the place it was born in order to lay its eggs (ie, to spawn). That upstream river swim towards the spot where the salmon was born is so exhaustive that salmon "usually die after spawning" (source). I suppose this explains the human adage: go with the flow. Most of us adhere to that adage. At times, we don't like that...

The Flow: individual and collective

While editing my July 1 blog, I discovered the flow model by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. It combines several of my topics: Boredom, Control, Doubt (worry), Fear (anxiety), and Flow.

The Flow of Life

In Wednesday's blog, I mentioned the "flow of life" in my final paragraph. The first time, I mentioned the word "flow" was in my 2015 blog: In pursuit of happiness. In a 2004 TED video, psychologist Martin Seligman mentions the "flow" within the field of positive psychology. I have also mentioned that creativity (my blog) and Change (my blog) feel like a "flow" to...
