How to Use Flow In The Job Search

What is "flow"? Flow as described by the psychology professor and educator,Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, is a state of being andbehavior. The behavior is one of complete absorption in a task. It is a transcendent state of being.

An example would be of a musician whoseplaying causes the person playing to losesight of time, place & circumstances. Some people have called this a "divine rapture".

How can a job seeker find "flow"? More oftenthere is tension, worry, frustration, anger, despair.It sounds as if a rapturous state of mind is beyond comprehension as one looks for a job.

There are all of the preparatory steps: A resume,filling in applications, interviews and phoning.These are necessary functions of the jobsearch.

But what if a person looking for a job could see a larger picture; one in which he or shemoves towards non-worry and does "go withthe flow" of events, putting the negativity ofbeing rejected or stressed into a state of inner knowing that he/she is doing everythingright?

"Flow" sounds right for the job seeker touse. It could make the current job search the bestone of all.
