I've been interested in Csíkszentmihályi since I first learned of his work. Since we can find examples of flow in a variety of endeavors, having research about it is welcome. However, I wasn't aware of Csikszentmihalyi's emphasis on learning the rules until I did some recent research on the "10,000 hours" concept and found his thoughts on creativity. Although recent books citing the "10,000 hours" concept suggest that its application is universal (i.e., you can't be an expert without at least 10,000 hours or ten years of deliberate practice), in reality the "10,000 hours" concept has only been researched in certain fields, where there are specific, measurable ways to compare one person's output to another's. So when you are comparing passion to flow, you might also note the "10,000 hours" discussions because they are more rules-based than most people realize. Here's what I found and it includes a quote from Csíkszentmihályi. is now following The Typepad Team
