Authentic Happiness: Post #5
Flow is a term (coined by Mihaly Csikzentmihaly) that refers to being ‘in the zone’ at work or play. That is, being so engaged that time flies and your highest and best use of strengths are in play. Seligman’s advice: Get a job or recraft your job to meet your strengths or bad things—like burnout and fatigue—can happen. We had a saying in the Marine Corps: Never try to teach a pig how to sing. You can’t do it, and you’ll just piss off the pig.
