Michael Sahota, keynote speaker at the Agile Games in April 2012 presented by Agile New England at the Microsoft Center in Cambridge, brilliantly references the art of surfing by connecting it with the concept of flow in this article about how we approach fear in our worklives.

“The flow model provides a great way to surf our own personal edges. We are in a state of flow when the difficulty is matched to our capability. By placing ourselves in situations with the right level of challenge, we can confront a fear and work through releasing it.”
