Challenge + fun



Gotta any areas you wanna develop more?


How you doing on that front?


At some point you may find you hit a plateau or it just ain’t landing the same level of enjoyment + challenge that it once did. Boredom now may perhaps be the default.

Check this out…


“In all the activities people in our study reported engaging in, enjoyment comes at a very specific point: whenever the opportunities for action perceived by the individual are equal to his or her capabilities. Playing tennis, for instance, is not enjoyable if the two opponents are mismatched. The less skilled player will feel anxious, and the better player will feel bored. The same is true for every other activity… Enjoyment appears at the boundary between boredom and anxiety, when the challenges are just balanced with the person’s capacity to act.” (MIHALY CSIKSZENTMIHALYI)


Think of an area in which you are seeking to define, discover and develop more.


What is it?


What’s your current boundary + what could you do to tip just past boredom into challenge?


In other words how could you set it up to be a tab bit more challenging and fun?


What would need to change?


That’s where the enjoyment is.


With ARETE,
