Match challenge with skills illustration: a chart of skills and challenge shows flow in the center and anxiety and boredom at the edges

Match challenge with skills for flow at work

How to get into flow at work? Match challenge with skills.

When your work is too hard for your skill you experience anxiety.

When your skill is too high for the work you experience boredom.

When your skill is matched with the challenge of the work then you can experience flow.

This simple framework comes from the deep insights of the work of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and his book Good Business.
