Flow, which is also known as the "zone" with athletes is describes as..."Flow is a blissful state of balance, where you are fully immersed in a task, completely free from distracting thoughts. Flow states enable you to enjoy your work and perform at the peak of your potential." by Dr. Travis Bradberry, author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0.
Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence which is known as the bible of EQ says "Flow is a state of self-forgetfulness, the opposite of rumination and worry: instead of being lost in nervous preoccupation, people in flow are so absorbed in the task at hand that they lose all self-consciousness...Paradoxically, people in flow exhibit a masterly control of what they are doing, their responses perfectly attuned to the changing demands of the task...they are unconcerned with how they are doing...the sheer pleasure of the act itself is what motivates them."
Dr. Travis Bradberry wrote this article How To Experience Flow and Get Crazy Productive that I highly recommend!
