One thing is important to every bodybuilder amongst these groups and others, and that is the ability to become progressively more and more successful and productive as we go through life striving to become the best we can be. Controlling and mastering the concept of "flow," will help push you to that pinnacle of the human you can become.
Everyone has the ability to work with flow, but various things can hold people back, especially a negative mental attitude. Becoming a productive person takes hard work and ethical values, without them you will not achieve what you set out to do.
Here are some points to consider when wanting to improve your flow and overall productivity ...
Highly productive people take the time to think, plan and set priorities. They then launch quickly and strongly toward their goals and objectives. They work steadily, smoothly and continuously and seem to go through enormous amounts of work in the same time period that the average person spends socializing, wasting time and working on low value activities.
Getting Into The Flow
When you work on high-value tasks at a high and continuous level of activity, you can actually enter into an amazing mental state called "flow." Almost everyone has experienced this at some time. Really successful people are those who get themselves into this state far more often than the average. In the state of "flow," which is the highest human state of performance and productivity, something almost miraculous happens to your mind and emotions.
Double Your Productivity
You feel elated and clear. Everything you do seems effortless and accurate. You feel happy and energized. You experience a tremendous sense of calm and personal effectiveness.
Become More Alert And Aware
In the state of "flow," identified and talked about over the centuries, you actually function on a higher plane of clarity, creativity and competence. You are more sensitive and aware. Your insight and intuition functions with incredible precision. You see the interconnectedness of people and circumstances around you. You often come up with brilliant ideas and insights that enable you to move ahead even more rapidly.
Develop A Sense Of Urgency
One of the ways you can trigger this state of flow is by developing a "sense of urgency." This is an inner drive and desire to get on with the job quickly and get it done fast. This inner drive is an impatience that motivates you to get going and to keep going. A sense of urgency feels much like racing against yourself.
Create A Bias For Action
With this ingrained sense of urgency, you develop a "bias for action." You take action rather than talking continually about what you are going to do. You focus on specific steps you can take immediately. You concentrate on the things you can do right now to get the results you want and achieve the goals you desire.
First, select one major task confronting you and launch into it immediately. Don't hesitate. Move fast. Second, start doing this every morning, first thing, until it becomes a habit.
This is merely and over-view of what flow is like and the beginnings of understanding it. We all can become a champion bodybuilder, or a top executive, but we can get there much faster if we work in the most effective way possible instead of having no set direction or goal.
