Importance of feedback
One obstacle at work to the well-being is the lack of feedback or it´s obscurity. Tasks should be constructed in such a way that it is possible to accurately know what each should do - and also know when the job is completed successfully . It is good to share the tasks in parts . Henry Ford has wisely said that no task is particularly difficult, as long as it is divided into small enough pieces .
In order to experience flow you need to get fully concentrated on the task . The first step towards flow to try to do one thing at a time. Secondly, cleaning up your own work table from distractions helps. It is good to clean out everything that is not absolutely necessary from the table. E-mail alarms is good to close and also put the phone to silent mode . Thirdly , it is possible to ease the pressure of reminder of your own mind by writing tasks to be done on a paper. This reduces your mind interruptions significantly. So you are able to concentrate better on the task at hand .
The task must be in some way relevant.
To achieve the Flow mode, it is important that job is either important of one´s inner motivation or that it is associated with a greater goal.
