Get in Flow- "The Rise of Superman" (Kotler) with Devan McConnell
2 days ago
"When I was reading this, I was relating back to moments when I played and getting into that (flow) state; I remember this sort of quiet calmness where I would have these conversations in my head and everything else was in slow motion." Devan McConnell, Head Sports Performance Coach at University of Massachusetts at Lowell is on to talk about The Rise of Superman. From the publisher: In this groundbreaking book, New York Times–bestselling author Steven Kotler decodes the mystery of ultimate human performance. Drawing on over a decade of research and first-hand reporting with dozens of top action and adventure sports athletes like big wave legend Laird Hamilton, big mountain snowboarder Jeremy Jones, and skateboarding pioneer Danny Way, Kotler explores the frontier science of “flow,” an optimal state of consciousness in which we perform and feel our best. Building a bridge between the extreme and the mainstream, The Rise of Superman explains how these athletes are using flow to do the impossible and how we can use this information to radically accelerate performance in our own lives. At its core, this is a book about profound possibility; about what is actually possible for our species; about where—if anywhere—our limits lie.
