    Try to add some novelty, using your strength of

    curiosity, to the task. What is interesting about the

    task?

    How can you increase your skill? Or increase

    challenge?

    Go through the 9 factors that induce flow and see how

    you can build them into the activity*

    *Reminder: You do not need all 9 to induce flow.
