Flow and Meaningful Work

Hi! My name is Rachel.  I am one of the newer interns at Bright Livelihoods, and I couldn’t be more excited!

I found this amazing video on TedTalks featuring Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi entitled, “Flow, the Secret to Happiness.

During this video one quote stuck out to me, and it was said by Norman Augustine to further aid in Csikszentmihalyi’s discussion. The quote is as followed: “I’ve always wanted to be successful. My definition of successful is contributing something to the world…and being happy while doing it. You won’t be very good if you don’t. And secondly, you have to feel that you are contributing something worthwhile… if either of these ingredients are absent, there’s probably some lack of meaning in your work.”
