In this episode, Aviv discusses the anatomy of flow and bringing focus to the aerobic zone of productivity. Aviv views himself as a conduit of service. He recalls a recent conversation he had about his secret to productivity. The realization was that there is no secret. Productivity is a product of developing readiness and building a capacity to act. This occurs best in a state of creative flow.

Aviv breaks down three broad opportunity fields. Field A involves serving creative opportunities. Field B is centered on serving close family, friends, and others that Aviv cares about. Lastly, Field C focuses on serving others who do not fall under the category of Field B. These include clients and organizations that Aviv serves.

Aviv talks about the importance of seizing opportunity, finding new capabilities and creating innovative solutions. Finally, Aviv challenges listeners to identify their opportunity fields, discover their creative aerobic zone, and remove obstacles and resistance in order to enter the flow.
