Flow

flow

This is one of the best talks I’ve watched. I first listened to it in HP more than two years back and I’ve been coming back to view to it over and over again. Its intriguing. The youtube description of this video is:

Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi asks, “What makes a life worth living?” Noting that money cannot make us happy, he looks to those who find pleasure and lasting satisfaction in activities that bring about a state of “flow.”

The problem with that question is, no matter how facsinating it may be, I dont want to be aware of what makes a life worth living! If I did, it would be the classical “Is that it?” moment.  Nevertheless, objectively, it makes a lot of sense. the key message in this talk is a key principle on which job hunting should begin :)
