In search of the optimal learning experience: Flow theory and its implications for talent development


Janet Thomas


The act of writing justifies poetry. Climbing is the same: recognising that you are a flow. The purpose of the flow is to keep on flowing, not looking for a peak or utopia but staying in the flow. It is not a moving up but a continuous flowing; you move up only to keep the flow going. There is no possible reason for climbing except climbing itself; it is a selfcommunication (cited in Csikszentmihalyi, 1975, pp.47–8).
