VIDEO: Flow, the secret to happiness

“What makes a life worth living?” Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi asks. Noting that money cannot make us happy, he looks to those who find pleasure and lasting satisfaction in activities that bring about a state of “flow.”

AS ted.com notes, “One of our greatest social scientists discusses his biggest idea: Flow, that delicious moment when the challenges we face are so exquisitely matched to our abilities that we lose a sense of time, place, and self.”
