Duality of the Flow State

The single-task focus is glorified. Everywhere I look. Guy: “ All my success comes from getting into the zone and working hard!”

Flow state means full immersion in a certain task or activity. Often it’s mentioned in sports. “When in the zone, he can’t be stopped”.

But we need to consider where the attention lies. Sure, it can be directed within. It can be directed towards the surroundings as well.

Can one be in the flow whilst constantly being distracted?
