The Flow State

The highest level of performance is achieved when we reach a state of ‘Unconscious Competence’ (see diagram below), often called the ‘Flow State’ in every-day conversation.  After experiencing the ‘Flow State’, people often say they felt like they were ‘in the zone’ or that it almost felt like they were ‘in a semi-trance like state’. They talk about doing things automatically or on autopilot. Sometimes they can’t describe how they did a particular task. They just knew that they had reached a level of relaxed intensity and performed their role to a very high level.


Unconscious Competence (The Flow State)



The highest levels of performance are achieved with an 20/80 ratio,

20% conscious behaviour, 80% unconscious.


The Flow State is achieved through 2 key themes.

1.      Developing a strong relationship with your unconscious mind, so that you make it your best friend.

2.      Practicing skills that are important to your role to such a high level that that they become second nature and are managed by the unconscious mind rather than the conscious mind.
