When were you last so absorbed in doing something that you lost track of time and space?

We call this ‘being in flow’, and like being suspended in water, we become more flexible and open.

Bruce Lee said, “You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drop and it can crash. Become like water, my friend.”

This art piece, featuring Jeremy Loops inspires us to be more in flow with life. By identifying with water, we’re identifying with the driving force of all nature.

These are the three steps I’ve found useful to getting in flow:

1. Choose to do one task that excites you

2. Put aside 3 uninterrupted hours to do this task, and only this task. Multitasking is the enemy of flow.

3. Put your phone in another room, on silent mode for the full duration.
