Flow state (aka being “in the zone”) is when you feel completely immersed and focused on what you are doing. All sense of time and outside distractions melt away. Hours pass in what feels like minutes and the completed work magically appears in front of you.

To achieve a flow state, the challenge of the project must match your ability. Too easy and you will be bored and disengaged. Too difficult, and progress will be too slow to gather momentum. There are several approaches to help us shrink and expand tasks to match our abilities and quickly achieve flow.
