Really enjoyed this book, it is all about why flow is so important for anyone in their job. How can companies create flow - clear goals, a good match between skills and challenge and immediate feedback. It sounds simple but like the author says, a book could be written about each of these. Some great food for thought about how we live our lives in general, pearls like seeing your life as an accumulation of those moments you spend paying attention to particular things. So what are you paying attention to, this is creating the summation of your life. If you can pay attention to things that grow in complexity and lead to a deeper self then your life can be more fulfilling than if you choose passive activities such as watching TV. This applies more so to children, who are learning an approach to their life, build skill, deepen complexity or relax and veg out.
