Flow, or lack thereof

My colleague Dave, an insightful and deep thinker, noted for me today "We cannot achieve flow unless we are willing to clarify our processes."

He’s right on the money. And, try putting the statement in reverse: the measure to which we achieve flow allows a well-grounded assessment of process clarity. When flow stops, the root cause is often in clarity of the process. I don’t know what to do next. I don’t know who gets this. I don’t know how “good” is “good.”

Disruption of flow may be the best thing that could happen to you. It may well drive clarity for you in a brand new way.

I hope this is helpful. Feel free to forward to a friend. Email me
