Flow: The cookbook for happiness

Just finished this great book of happiness. The ultimate manual of happiness for the human.

The cookbook for happiness

Aren't we all looking for happiness in our lives?

How to get into the state of flow and optimal experience.

The writer, Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi takes you into the trip of seeking happiness of human through every kind of daily experiences.

I must deny it, after reading that book my mind couldn't still be the same at all.

You will have the ability to enjoy yourself at every single step of your life

The writer gives you the way you can find flow in either big experiences like rock climbing, wave surfing or in small ordinary daily activities like watching sunset or playing with your kids.

After reading that book your mind will never be the same anymore

The flow is the state at which mind can be at its best state. It's the state at which the one is so engaged so that he is so involved that he only think of the thing he is doing and not in his problems and all his daily stresses.

After you read that book, you can truly find flow in stuff like reading, writing, walking, running, swimming or whatever you are doing.

Even you can find flow in your job.

The book also deals with people who may be suffering from their problems and those who could use the state of flow to overcome those problems and painful experiences.

How you can turn a boring event or meeting into an interesting time that you feel like you are enjoying every moment of it?

The book is published at 1990 but deals with problems that still touches our daily lives with only small differences. Especially those have to do with technological effects on our lives and attention.

The reader has published new books that deal with that subject with modern approach.

The writer experience in Muslim world

In the book, the writer mentions some words he has heard them from many workers and professionals in Muslim countries.

He mentions that when he asked those people about how they could handle stresses at their daily lives he had always heard the same answer:

"We feel that our lives is guided and controlled by Allah so we never feel stress or fear."

I admit that I could find my mind's state of flow through writing books and blogs. But after reading that book, I could really find that state of mind in every aspect of daily life.

Backyard Wind Turbines: Harness wind power with simple and fun projects by [Ebeed, Ahmed]

Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World Book Review

Today I finished the best seller book in Time Management in Business Field:

Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World for Cal Newport

Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World by [Newport, Cal]

This book handles a very important issue with today modern life.

The feeling of distraction in general due to the high usage of communication technology and the actual distraction among knowledge workers.

The modern age distraction

Starting from multi tabs browser through living through your inbox all the day and ending with surfing the internet for entertainment. And the big distracting factor while having the fake feeling of connectivity with social networks.

Practical working tips

The book gives you some important tips about time management and how you can conquer procrastination. Setting deadlines for your work is a direct way to force your mind to get into deep working state to get things done. Cutting useless communications and emails to save your time from time thieves.

Successful examples

The writer introduces you with his own experiment with deep work through his early days of study at MIT and during his later days as a professor.

He also highlights some experiments from successful people and leaders who knew how to manage their times and make deep work a long life habit.


At the end, the book comes to a conclusion that tries to convince you with. Deep work is the key to success in everybody's life and especially in knowledge workers lives.

You can change your life by devoting good share of your time and effort to deep work.

My productivity and focus series

The book is a great book for productivity and a very good book for me in my randomly selected series of books that takes focus, productivity, talent and deep practice to a new meaning for me.

I have started this series with the best book about Neuroscience and Neuroplasticity:

The Brain That Changes Itself.

Then I came across the book I have been recommended by Tony Robbins

The Talent Code: Greatness is not Born, Its Grown and Here is How

Then I knew the concept of Flow as a psychological state of mind. And I will read the book that adds to my series.

And I came to the Book

The Power of Now

Which highlights the importance of feeling and living in the instantaneous moment of Now.

And then I stumbled upon the book from which I learned how to use my memory as a perfect way to improve it using advice from the world memory athletes champions,

Moonwalking with Einstein

Product Details

And now that book 

Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World

Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World by [Newport, Cal]

I hope you read it.

I had many useful insights and information from such series. I'm trying to read as much as I can of those similar books.

My next step is a project in which I can compile the knowledge I got from all these books into one of my own.

I will make it soon. Sure I have to make a deadline for it to make it real.

Thank you for reading...
