Quote: "The future is here, it's just not evenly distributed yet." — William Gibson
This is more relevant to the times we find ourselves in with respect to Corona and the adversity people are facing rather than our work directly, although there are interrelations between peak performance and flow and stoicism, I'm a huge fan of stoic philosophy it's incredible as Tim Ferriss calls an operating system for life and decision making. There's a quote that is potentially relevant to a lot of people right now, which is that what obstructs the path becomes the path that I've always found incredibly helpful to remember. Another way to put it is that Ryan Holiday uses as one of the titles of his books is the obstacles away. In other words, what it is that we're facing is the thing that we're supposed to be facing. So it's just a matter of learning how to perceive it as positively as possible and then do our absolute best in the face of it.
