Steven Kotler: Flow is the doorway to more that most of us seek!

steven kotlerThis is my second interview with Steven Kotler. Last time we discussed Abundance: The Future is Better than You Think – the book Steven co-wrote with Peter Diamandis. This time we are here to discuss reaching our optimum state of performance or what many of us call Flow.

During our conversation with Steven Kotler we cover issues such as: the definition of flow as an optimal state of performance; his profound personal experiences of being in flow; the likelihood of putting flow in a pill or video game; why we need setting both long-term as well as clear short-term goals; Nietzsche and transhumanism; the flow genome project
