It’s a famous saying isn’t it? “Time is money!” And certainly time can be charged out in a monetary way. If you were to hire me as your coach, you’d find that my coaching fees are based largely on time.

Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi refers to this state (in his classic book) as Flow. We are totally immersed in our activity, brimming over with creative joy. Unaware of the passing of time and certainly not thinking even remotely about money.
How long ago was it that you last reached this state of flow? What were you doing? How can you open your life to more experiences of flow?
Pilgrim’s Moon is taking a short break now until after Easter so I leave you to reflect on these questions over the next few days. I’d love to hear your experiences and ideas.
