Flow State: The Ultimate Hack for Mastery
Book Six in the series “Kaizen-durance, Your Aerobic Path to Mastery” explores the ultimate hack for peak performance: Flow State. Flow state has been the subject of many studies and books, most notably the modern classic “Flow, The Psychology of Optimal Experience”, by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. When we can orchestrate this flow state, we can enjoy peak and direct experience that leads to brilliant performance, supreme satisfaction, and genuine happiness.
Another definition for flow state is sustained brilliance. In this book, Eversfield presents the culmination of kaizen – the experience of brilliance, ease and flow in any and every moment of our lives. The five books leading to this final offering in the series provide guidance and insight for using endurance training (and racing) as a viable mindfulness practice to arrive with maximum potential for the flow state of sustained brilliance in any and every moment of our lives.
There are sequential stages – associated with specific neuro-chemical states and specific brain-wave states – that comprise flow state. Our practice of kaizen-durance provides us with daily opportunities to orchestrate this sequence. As we gain proficiency and experience with orchestrating these in our training and our racing, we discover the opportunity and the skill to orchestrate flow state during even the most mundane experiences of our daily lives.
In Book Six, “Zenman” offers guidance for training our flow skills while we are conducting our endurance training sessions. He reveals how racing provides us with a challenging opportunity to actuate sustained brilliance on higher levels that we can then actuate in our ordinary and less “significant” moments.
Most vital of all, Eversfield guides us to be vigilant so we can recognize and embrace the opportunity that is arising in each moment to orchestrate sustained brilliance in our lives, and in the lives of those around us. Brilliance is nothing if it is not shared.
