Creative Pep Talk #17: Flow vs. Pressure

Pep Talk Logo

Have you ever been in a state of flow? I’ll bet you’ve been under pressure. What’s the difference between these two states? They can be easily confused, so I’m here this week to share some thoughts on the critical differences between flow and pressure (and a few overlaps!).

Want more help? Check out my Creative Tune-Up, which is full of my favorite coaching tools to help you get unstuck. 

Flow can be magical, because the things that we produce in a flow state tends to be so much beyond what we could force ourselves to do in a pressure state.
