They make perfect sense. They're very simple and straightforward.
The best way to access a flow state for me is either
1) posting on dissensus
2) playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare for 8 hours
I've read the book "Flow". I don't recall it being about productivity so much as happiness (though productivity might be a byproduct of that).
I recall him writing that people make a mistake in devoting their leisure time to passive activities like watching TV, because we're actually happiest when we're doing something challenging, though not too challenging to enjoy and not too easy to be completely inane.
Do you do this for your own poems or is this just for poems you do at work?I've never known what people mean by 'thinking.' Thoughts, yes, I can see what people mean by thoughts, but thinking as an active, directed process I'm sceptical about. I'm not convinced it exists. In what I do, which has tight time constraints, typically an idea pops into my head immediately, but if I started 'thinking' I would get stuck.
If customers ask I usually tell them I try to move quickly enough that no options present themselves, as soon as you're presented with a choice of paths you're stuck. Go at the correct speed and that dilemma doesn't arise.
Strong and IMO correct takeThis sounds to me more like an inner voice than 'thinking'. Jibber jabber exists, thinking is probably a myth, that's my position.
