Flow state is good, being in the zone is great. When you’re in it, it takes you down a path, and as long as you are in it, you keep moving down that path, you keep pushing, you keep delivering.
Until, you find yourself down a rabbit hole, until you realize you’ve been flowing too long.
So then you come back to the rest of the world with your plan, with all your work and you present it to everyone, and it’s at that point you realize something – you were gone too long, you didn’t check in, you missed important changes and now you’re trying to figure out what’s next.
Flow is good, Breaking Flow shows it’s not only about you, but the team as well – that’s where the best developers shine.
