Csikszentmihalyi and Your Best Creative Self
One of the books I read this summer, Creativity: The Psychology of Discovery and Invention, initially caught my eye for two main reasons. First, its author Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (Mee-hay Cheek-sent-mee-hay), had coined the term “flow”—the state of deep engagement in an activity that makes time slow down and effort seem easy, and I was interested in reading what he had to say about discovery and invention. Second, I have never considered myself creative, and as we entered a year with the theme of “be your best self,” I wanted to learn how to be my best creative self.
