Last night I achieved flow. Wikipedia defines flow as “the mental state of operation in which a person in an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity”. Flow is that state of mind you’re in when you sit down to play a game or write some code and look up five minutes later to find that you just stayed up the whole night. Flow is to be truly focused.
