When was the last time you felt like you were working from a state of flow and ease in your business? Recently, I have been delving into learning more about the flow state because I am on a bit of a mission to create more consciousness in how I run my business.
The flow state or being "in the zone" is your optimal state of consciousness. As intentional business owners, getting into a state of flow can positively impact how you run your conscious business and manage your energy. For me, I would find myself in a state of flow when doing something creative like design, branding, coaching or concept creation. Working within this state of flow has been proven (based on research from McKinsey) to increase productivity by up to 500%.
Match what you are skilled at with something that feels challenging. This allows you to focus in on that particular task whilst also feeling confident that you can complete it.
Practice or build your skill or expertise so you feel competent & confident doing it. Example: Get better speaking in front of a camera by practicing on Insta-stories.
Apply your skill or expertise to a task or project. Example: Create my first Youtube video of me speaking.
Adjust the difficulty by setting a goal for the project so that it feels challenging but achievable. Example: Create a 20-minute video tutorial on something that I am comfortable speaking on.
