No, this is not about Britney Spears. Remember when you had to write term papers. Sometimes it was murder to get started, so you did everything imaginable other than actually write the paper. And when there was no more time to kill, you started to work. Surprisingly, something changed. You found that it wasn’t so hard, the words began to flow, and you were getting your thoughts across. You were producing pages without pain. You were in the zone; you found your tempo and flow.
Athletes talk a lot about being in the zone, that magical place where mind and body work in perfect sync and movements seem to flow without conscious effort.
When everthing comes naturally, easily, and seems to flow, that’s when you are in the zone. What a wonderful magical place it is, being in the zone.
