054: The Benefits of Developing Multiple Flow TriggersJun 23, 2021
It’s about 2 years ago now that I was reminded of how important it is to have multiple flow triggers...
Are There Different Kinds of Flow?
In the past, Steven Kotler suggested there are several flow state triggers that can be divided into four categories:
- Social: the collective flow or group flow happens when people enter a flow state together e.g. within a sports team.
- Creative: thinking differently about the challenges you face and approaching them from a different perspective.
- Environmental: external qualities in the environment that drive people deeper into ‘the zone’.
- Psychological: internal triggers that create more flow.
While we don’t necessarily classify the flow triggers like this anymore, it helps you see a more rounded picture of the different types and different ways you can enter flow. Currently, we believe there are 22 flow triggers in all and we will explore some of them in the next chapter.
