Finding The Zone by Lawrence Gordon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a fascinating exploration of the nature of motivation - and how we can maximise our motivational potential. In the zone - not just zoning-out - is a great place to be. Whether the zone experience happens in our work or play, it is where our best stuff flows together and we find powerful motivation to keep improving. But, knowing the power and deep satisfaction of the zone experience, we have to wonder why we don't get there more often. This fascinating exploration of mind and motivation shows that the main barrier is the deep-seated, conventional assumption that we are born with unformed, unorganized minds in need of structure supplied by good parents and teachers. It highlights the work of current researchers who have documented that babies are born with investigative minds already exquisitely organized to make sense of the world and to take the initiative to figure out ways to get their world to be responsive to their needs. It goes on to describe how this inborn mental organization comes in different patterns and mind-sets, each with its own motivational structure and its own zone-precipitating conditions. Understanding these life-long motivation patterns and the zone phenomenon are the keys to better teaching, supervision and parenting.
