My guest today is Steven Kotler. Steven is
one of the world's leading experts on achieving Ultimate Human
Performance through Flow States. "Flow" is the
cognitive state of full immersion and focus in which brain activity
changes to enable peak human capability across an intellectual or
physical activity. It's characterized by rapt attention so deep
that one loses their sense of space and time, tapping into
radically heightened performance, creativity, and learning.
Steven is the Executive Director of the Flow Research
Collective, and a New York Times bestselling author. His books
include The Rise of Superman, Tomorowland, and Stealing Fire. Along
with Peter Diamandis, he co-authored the books Bold,
Abundance, and most recently The Future is Faster than you
Think. We go deep into the neurological causes of flow states,
what it enables, and how to achieve it.
