FLOW
Time warps (slow or fast)
Lose sense of self
Intense focus
Perform at highest level
Seems effortless (flow)
Internally satisfying
Regain larger sense of self
Adapted from FLOW by Mihalyi Csikszentmihalyi

What do you think of Flow …
It seems to come from a variety of sources
But can you repeat it regularly or is it
“unmanageable?”
Could you design it into your life?
More importantly, what if it were in you, that is,
what if you could transport it from one activity
to another?

“When people come to work, it’s
important that they be connected to a
dream.”
- Bill Gates, Fortune, 1/26/04, p. 124

Not much happens without a dream. And for
something great to happen, there must be a great
dream. Behind every great achievement is a
dreamer of great dreams. Much more than a
dreamer is required to bring it to reality; but the
dream must be there first.
- Robert Greenleaf, Servant Leadership, p. 16

Two Kinds of Life’s Dreams
LD external
 What you wanted to be or do.
 Externally measured
 Achievement based
 “Success”
8
LD internal
 How you felt at your best.
 Internally measured
 Experience based
 “Success”
DREAMS (LDext & LDint)
 Natural
 Given
 Forgotten or put aside
 Discovered or Built
9
Your internal Life’s Dream (LDint)
 Is not a “goal” which is a “false dream”
 Is a connection between resonance
producing activities and the Feelings that
come at the peak

Goals vs “Experience” (feel)
 Much of the industrial era has focused on goal
setting
 Achievement orientation often drives our
behavior at the expense of our emotional
experience
 Remember to remember how you feel is
equally as important as what you do.

All I work on is finding a rhythm that feels
strong and sticking to it.”

Does how you feel
affect your performance?
 How many times have you been asked by supervision at
work how you want to feel?
 How do you WANT to feel?
 The pervasive management assumption:

Preparation
People ask me, “How do you play so well?”
I practiced, intense “shedding.” If you’re
willing to put in the time, you can do it to a
certain level. Maybe I have a special talent
that is intangible, but if you are willing to
put in the time, you can really get it
together.”
Bruce Hornsby

The Relationship between Dream and
Preparation: Vijay Singh, pro golfer
“Confidence doesn’t come from winning.
Winning comes from confidence. And that
confidence comes from hard work.”
- Vijay Singh, Golf Digest, “From the Gallery,” June 2005. Singh won nine tournaments in
2004, was ranked #1 in the world, and is known for his extraordinary practice regimen,
hours and hours a day.

Relationship between
stamina and the “dream”
“Even to this day I get a thrill out of just
hitting balls. Seeing the shot and then hitting
the shot. If I can hit the ball the way I want to
hit it on the range, I’d rather do that than play
golf. I just love the feeling of hitting good
golf shots.”
- Vijay Singh, Golf Digest, April 2008, page 188.

What do you enjoy enough that you can
persist doing it just for the joy of doing it?
What’s the difference between
“work” and a “job?”
“I stopped loving golf at exactly the time I decided to
turn pro.”
- Tom Weiskopf , Golf, July 2004, p. 133
People pay me a lot of money to go away from my
family, stay in cheap motels, ride on the bus all
night, and eat rubber chicken. But when the
curtain goes up and the light on the camera goes
on, THAT I do for free.

We all start out knowing magic. We are born with
whirlwinds, forest fires and comets inside of us.
We are all born able to sing to birds and read the
clouds, and see our destiny in grains of sand.
33
But then we get the magic educated right out of our
souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed
out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and
narrow and told to be responsible. Told to act our
age. Told to grow up, for God’s sake. And you know
why we were told that? Because the people doing the
telling were afraid of our youth, and because the
magic we knew made them ashamed and sad about
what they had allowed to wither in themselves.
34
After you go so far away from it though, you can’t
really get it back, just seconds of knowing and
remembering. When people get weepy at movies, it’s
because in that dark theater the golden pool of magic
is touched just briefly. Then they come out into the
hard sun of logic and reason again and it dries up, and
they’re left feeling a little heavy, and they don’t know
why.
35
The truth of life is that each year we get a little further
from the essence that is born with us. We get
shouldered burdens, some of them good, some of them
not so good. Things happen to us. Life itself does its
best to take that memory of magic away from us. You
don’t know it’s happening until one day you feel like
you’ve lost something… and you’re not sure what it is.
It’s like smiling at a pretty girl, and she calls you “sir.”
It just happens.
From “Boy’s Life,” Robert MacCammon

Revisiting the Dream
 Reconnecting with your emotional experiencing
 Reconnecting with “why?”
 Balancing experience with results
 Getting OUT of the “duty cycle”
 Paradoxically improves results

Revisiting the Dream

What is “success?”
 Money?

 Power?
 “afterward, you want to do it again.”

“feel” and “goal” are not the same…
…we still had a long way to go. Like ants getting over an
enormous obstacle we climbed up without appearing to
make any progress. The slope was very steep. . . The air
was luminous, and the light was tinged with the most
delicate blue. On the other side of the couloir, ridges of
bare ice refracted the light like prisms and sparkled with
rainbow hues. The weather was still set fine--not a single
cloud--and the air was dry. I felt in splendid form and as if,
somehow, I had found a perfect balance within myself--was
this, I wondered, the essence of happiness.
Maurice Herzog, Annapurna, p. 166
44
So, we come back again to this
question:
How do you want to feel?
45
Resonance
is a question of
inward and outward harmony
I think that what we’re seeking is an
experience of being alive, so that our life
experiences on the purely physical plane
will have resonance with our innermost
being and reality, so that we actually feel
the rapture of being alive.
46
Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth, 1988
The Pursuit of Excellence
"Excellence is attained by those
who care more than others think is wise,
who risk more than others think is safe,
who dream more than others think is
practical.“

your external Life’s Dream
Ask yourself, “if you’re not resonating, will you be
performing at a world-class level?”
Pay attention to your experience along with your
achieving.
It’s your life: what are you willing to work for?
Ignore Task AND Process at the risk of your
enjoyment AND your performance
Implications for
Team Managers
Can you distinguish between LDext and LDint?
Can you identify your LDint?
Can you identify your team’s LDint?
Can you help people reconnect with their
LDint?

Maria Sharapova on “feel”
Bernie Goldberg: You are not all that comfortable with all the hoopla...
Sharapova: I understand it...I understand that part of it...I understand that
this is just part of my life. But do I like doing it all the time? No. I'd
rather be on the court.
Goldberg: So being back on the tennis court is more relaxing for you...
Sharapova: It is a feeling that you have...that I have hit a ball
since I was four years old...have I been in front of a camera since I was
four years old? No, that's not why I came to the U. S. I didn't come here
to be in front of a lens. I came here to work my butt off.
