What Mental State Are You In? Burnt Out? Apathetic? Bored? OR IN FLOW!?


Most people do not recognize that people have psychological motivations for doing the things they do.

The Cognitive Flow chart is broken into 4 Categories:

Burnt Out = High Difficulty + Low Skills =  Needing a coach, mentor, outsourcing. 

Apathy = Low Difficulty + Low Skills = Lack of interest, enthusiasm, commitment. 

Boredom = Low Difficulty + High Skills = A high skill set not being challenged. 

FLOW = High Difficulty + High Skills = WHERE YOU WANT TO BE!

In positive psychology, flow, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity! THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO BE!
