#GuildChat for 07/22/16: Working and Learning In A State of Flow

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, July 22 at 11AM PT/2PM ET. For our topic this week we look at working and learning in flow.


Summer conjures many images with water being one of them. So, like a cool, steady stream on a hot day we look to explore the idea of “flow” and what it means in work and of course learning.

Not sure what is meant by flow? This Wikipedia article provides good detail. Other terms often used to describe flow are being in the zone or when one is clicking on all cylinders.  Athletes, Authors, and Entrepreneurs often speak of the state of flow but regardless of your work, it is a place most want to be, a place of maximum productivity and one where what once felt difficult now comes with ease and in doing so brings pleasure to our efforts.

Join us for #GuildChat as we explore flow and when, why and how flow is achieved for both work and in learning.
