“You cannot run away from weakness; you must some time fight it out or perish; and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand?”—Robert Louis Stevenson

We've all heard of 'flow'. That mysterious in-the-zone state that athletes, performers and other professionals consummate in their craft seem to attain when they're really crushing it. But what is it and how do we get there deliberately, calling forth flow when we need (or want) it?

We'll cover that and more in this episode of The Art of Charm Podcast with Steven Kotler, including:

-The flow genome project (can we ENGINEER flow?)

-What is FLOW?

-What happens in your brain during flow?

-How do we trigger flow and harness it for ourselves?

-How flow saved Steven’s life and helped him recover from Lyme disease

-The flow cycle which is a roadmap for flow as well as practical things we can do and work on to make this cycle a reality for us

-More bullet points, likely all including the word 'flow' at some point ;)
