Flow State Tool Instructions
Step 1. Create your ideal flow state for the week ahead. In the log, enter what you envision as your ideal flow state for achieving your desired goals for the week ahead. If this is your first time start by adding one challenge daily to your usual routine and build up to your ideal flow state week-by-week.
Step 2. Choose your trigger cards for the week ahead. Use trigger cards to target and create your challenges. For example: If your flow state for the week ahead is averaging one power hour per day, choose one (or more) power hour "#" trigger card(s) for each day. Your challenge can be easy or difficult based on your desires. Just be sure your challenge is challenging and achievable.
Step 3. Print your ideal flow state log for the week ahead. In your printed log, note shifts (e.g., desired goal shifted to "NA" non-action) for future allocation. If a shift occurs, and you still have time, achieve your desired goal. If not, reallocate.
Step 4. Your challenge. Achieve your desired goals for the week. Keep your eye on the prize seeing that each and every challenge was carefully created by you and will bring you closer to achieving your desired goals for the week. Refrain from letting "NA" shifts stop you from achieving your desired goals.
Step 5. Boost your challenge. Try to keep "NA" shifts below 28 hours a week. Or, consider starting your day with a power hour "#" challenge you're most resistant to, but the result (or feeling) of achieving it will be very satisfying. Or, conquer two (or more) power hour challenges in one hour.
Step 6. Do not stress over "NA" shifts. This tool is meant to help you optimize YOUR flow state. Think of shifts as empowering insights to help you achieve your ideal flow state. Be honest with yourself so you can master yourself!
Step 7. End of the week review. Update your log with shifts (and notes), and then review your flow state. Use your shifts and notes to help you craft your ideal flow state for the week ahead. Keep tweaking week-by-week until you are in the flow state you desire!
Power Hour Challenge Instructions
Step 1. Create your trigger cards. Power hour (#) trigger cards represent daily maintenance (personal and environmental, tasks, chores, duties, upkeep, etc.). Write (or print) trigger words onto index cards or, if you're really into it, order personalized plastic cards!
Step 2. Choose your trigger cards. Choose up to seven trigger cards for one week. Use trigger cards to target and create achievable challenges. For example, trigger card #1, "walk, train, drill", target, "walk dog", trigger card #7, "sweep, vacuum, mop", target, "downstairs", etc.
Step 3. Stack your trigger cards. Stack your trigger cards based on your desires. As you progress through the week, rotate multi-targeted trigger cards. For example, you may assign trigger card #8 "purge, organize, clean" two targets; "Wednesday, fridge" and, "Friday, office".
Step 4. Your challenge. Conquer one challenge daily for one week. Disengage from all distractions (your computer, phone, etc.) and practice mastering yourself through your challenge for one hour; engage your eyes and discover all aspects of your challenge.
Step 5. Start your challenge. Set your intentions and commit to one hour (your power hour) of self-mastery without distractions (your computer, phone, etc). Pull your trigger card, review your notes (add sticky notes, etc.). Set timer (etc.). Then say, "Go" (start immediately).
Step 6. Finish your challenge. On the back of your trigger card, note the date, target, and minutes engaged. For example, on the back of trigger card #7 "sweep, vacuum, mop", write "1/23 - downstairs - 60m", then either rotate your trigger card or put it back into the deck.
Step 7. Power up your challenge. Power up by adding one challenge daily every week. For example, week two = two daily, week three = three daily, (etc.) until you are mastering six challenges daily in three hours (or less). Proceed to Powerhouse Flow State Challenge for more.
Power Hour Group Challenge plus Sticky Notes. Group members practice mastering themselves in targeted zones for one hour. Use sticky notes card for notes and ideas on future challenges. Keep sticky notes on this card until you assign the note (or idea) to a trigger card. Edit cards below.
Power Hour Daily Ritual. Start your day with a Power Hour Daily Ritual towards your long-term goal(s) or to create empowering habits. Daily Ritual trigger cards can be edited and used to sort your weekly challenges.
