Yes, this is a slightly 'woo woo' post as it's all about 'flow'. And if you don't do 'woo woo', let's call it 'getting in the zone' :)
But you know what I'm talking about right? When it's all working, it's just going the way you want it to... there are no bumps in the road, there are no objections, no 'problems'—in fact, you're on a roll. Yeah, we love that.
For me, it happens every minute of every day... I live my life entirely in flow... WHOA hold up! This is SO not true! Now, when I move to my Ashram and spend my entire days in a meditative state then maybe—just maybe—it will happen, but back in the 'real world' where I live with small people, tech that doesn't like me, stuff that bugs me needs to be done (yes, I am talking about you—evil admin!) and 'life' that is going on all around me, then no, I'm not in flow the entire time.
That said, I know when I am in flow and I know the best way for me to get into flow. I know where I like to be, what I like to be doing. I know the circumstances and the surroundings that best support me to be in flow. So I get in flow as much as I can and definitely when I am 'working' and doing my Thing.
Do you know your flow?
When were you last easily doing your Thing? Where were you when those ideas just came one after the other? What were you doing when you just 'had the answers'. Think about it, as this is where and when and how you'll be doing your Thing.
I know that I need to be in a great place—ideally by the seaside (although I'll go with whatever water I can find—a river or lake works, too). I like light and brightness and I like to be able to see the horizon. This is why you will never catch me running an event in an airport hotel in a room with no windows, btw! Eeek, no thanks. There's just no reason or need for that in my life if I choose it. I want to do my Thing the way I BEST do my Thing. If you want me at my best, you'll have to come and hang out in my flow. I don't usually get too many complaints about it, I'll be honest.
So make sure you insist on working in your flow, too. Make sure you insist on the location and the way and the connection that gives you what you want and allows you to do your Thing best.
Your work is your business and your best work is only going to grow your business. Don't give less than your best effort if you can help it. Do whatever you can to put you in your best light and in your flow.
Being in flow (or in the zone) is when everything just works. You're at your best and you're giving your best and why wouldn't you want to do that? It's such a great place to be and a great base to work from.
And I think it's pretty safe for me to say your business and bank balance will also be more in flow if you do.
So chill out. Find your space. Do your Thing and go with the Flow...
