This is a topic I have thought about quite a bit. I find that I am a focused person and upon achieving flow either at work or in my own study I will not allow that state to be interrupted until the product of my flow is completed. This does not correspond to the work habits of the status quo. It is not nine to five behavior. Consequently, my employers are continually at odds with performance and attendance. My experience of flow is generally not a team experience and I will not interrupt it to accommodate a team experience of flow. I will simply produce my deliverable and go and get some sleep.
