How To Optimize Entrepreneurial Life with Flow-state
Startup Colorado wraps up the blog series of the intersection of entrepreneurialism, burnout, and flow state. You’ve probably thought about flow-state from a sport perspective, but in today’s blog, Clare Hefferren shows us how it can be used in entrepreneurship. Read Part 3 in her series about surviving burnout and finding a better way of working (and living).
Excerpt: Some say I am disciplined, others rigid. Some admire the structure and others prefer chaos. I’ve found freedom in structure and I believe you can too.

As I watch citizen zombies cycle the day, I think, there is another way. It’s not about time, it’s about choices. Here are my favorite takeaways from my journey as a startup entrepreneur to burnout-proof your life and encourage flow.
