Vishen Lakhiani the founder of Mind Valley was asked to speak at Engage Today in Calgary along with such luminaries as Sir Richard Branson, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Stephen Covey and Nobel Prize Winner F.W De Klerk
This speech was voted as one of the top 3 speeches of the entire event. Vishen talked about Flow: The Ultimate State of Human Existence and why happiness is so important for productivity. He then shared 10 tips on how to master this state and how to bring it to teams, families, and groups you lead.
The video is just 39 mins. The last 13 mins are just Q&A with the audience (with a lot of jokes in between)
In a previous post I mentioned Positive Psychology – one of the founders, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, has written an excellent book on Flow. When in this Flow state, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life as Vishen describes in the video above. Flow is available as a free sample in the excellent Philosophers Notes book summaries series so if you’d like to find out more that is a good place to start.
