1. Define a clear purpose. Vague intentions don’t trigger the flow state.
  2. Identify a compelling motive. You need a reason to be creative.
  3. Architect a worthy challenge. If a task is too easy, you don’t need to be particularly creative, so your creative self will simply say, “You can manage this one without me.”
  4. Provide a conducive environment. The optimal environment varies from person to person, so you’ll need to experiment to find what works best for you.
  5. Allocate a committed block of time.
  6. Prevent interruptions and distractions.
  7. Master your tools. Creating a tangible piece of creative work requires tools such as a computer, guitar, or pencil. You must achieve basic competency.
