Today’s guest is a treat and a true flow scientist. And I am not just saying that: Our guest Dr. Michele Ufer is a runner, performance coach, and researcher that studies all things flow.
Recognizing, testing, and overcoming limits – that’s what Dr. Michele Ufer is all about.
As a scientist he researches the subject of limits, as a successful extreme runner he tests his research on his own body, and as a coach, he has the expertise gained from 20 years of professional experience.
What skiing is for Steven, running is for Michele.
He has written 6 books on hunting flow, some in English, many of them in German. One of his German books is called “flow hunter” which we find a pretty cool name for all of us flow hackers and impossible seekers.
In this episode, we hear how he defines flow, how self-talk impacts the challenge skills balance, and lots more.
