What is the most important thing in life? To me happiness would rank near the top of the list of the most important components of life. This brings up the inevitable question, how do I create/become happy? Mihaly Csikszentmihalyia professor of psychology has a theory of creating "Flow." The idea behind flow is participating in a certain activity that involves your complete attention. This allows you to take your mind off of whatever might be going on in your life and focus on the activity at hand. To enter into a state of "flow" I have found that going out for a stress free round of golf is most effective. Being out on the course with family and friends or maybe even alone seems to simply life and allows "flow" to occur and above all els, happiness!
