My notes, including liberal use of direct quotes:
8 elements of enjoyment:
1. confront challenging but completable tasks
3. clear goals
4. immediate feedback
5. deep, effortless involvement (lack of awareness of worries and frustrations)
6. sense of control over actions
7. concern for self disappears (paradoxically awareness of self is heightened immediately after flow)
8. sense of duration of time is altered
5 elements of happy teenagers' growing up:
2. centering: parents' interest in the child in that moment
5. challenge: parents provide appropriate challenges for their children
Quadrants of flow:
Goal: High challenge, high skill
Low challenge, high skill = boredom
Low skill, high challenge = anxiety
Roger Callois: Four kinds of play
1. agon: competition
2. alea: games of chance
3. ilinx: vetigo, disorienting pleasures
1. yama: restraint
2. niyama: obedience
3. asana: sitting
4. pranayama: breath control
5. pratyahara: withdrawal; ability to see, feel, and hear at will
6. dharana: holding on; concentrate on single stimulus (opp. of 5)
7. dhyana: intense meditation (sans external object of 6)
8. samadhi: self-collectedness
The goal of loss of self is opposite of flow, but the first 7 steps yield greater self-control similar to flow. These 7 steps can be applied in various contexts, with other ultimate goals.
Music, Food: Consume passively or savor actively?
Memorize facts not to memorize, but to gain understanding and contextualized knowledge.
Applying scientific reasoning, mathematical thinking, is viewed as a pleasurable game by experts in the field. How can I encourage this intrinsic enjoyment in my students???
Question: The Bible states that work is a punishment for sin. Is our current ability to specialize jobs a gift of systemic cooperation? Maybe for fortunate people like me who love my work, but certainly not for everyone.
Transformational (not regressive) coping:" "If one operates with unselfconscious assurance, and remains open to the environment and involved in it, a solution is likely to emerge."
1. Setting goals
2. Becoming immersed in the activity
3. Paying attention to what is happening
4. Learning to enjoy immediate experience
How does someone stay relaxed under extreme pressure? "There is nothing to it. We don't get upset because we believe that our life is in God's hands, and whatever He decides will be fine with us."
Significant childhood pain can lead to a well-adjusted adult's lifelong theme of service to correct the injustice.
This book appears to assume an intrapersonal learning style (NF?)

Read information about the authorA Hungarian psychology professor, who emigrated to the United States at the age of 22. Now at Claremont Graduate University, he is the former head of the department of psychology at the University of Chicago and of the department of sociology and anthropology at Lake Forest College.
He is noted for both his work in the study of happiness and creativity and also for his notoriously difficult name, in terms of pronunciation for non-native speakers of the Hungarian language, but is best known as the architect of the notion of flow and for his years of research and writing on the topic. He is the author of many books and over 120 articles or book chapters. Martin Seligman, former president of the American Psychological Association, described Csikszentmihalyi as the world's leading researcher on positive psychology.
Csikszentmihalyi once said "Repression is not the way to virtue. When people restrain themselves out of fear, their lives are by necessity diminished. Only through freely chosen discipline can life be enjoyed and still kept within the bounds of reason." His works are influential and are widely cited.
