Have you ever heard of the term “autotelic?” Basically, it means “self goal.” Dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi uses it to describe people who are driven by their sense of purpose in his book Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience. We believe Iron Butterflies Project is an autotelic project because the purpose of the project is the project itself. We are not “for-profit,” or “non-profit.” It is our passion project.
When we are in “flow” we are focused on bringing you inspirational and meaningful stories. Join our team of writers and let us know if you want to share your story. #flow #autotelic #mihalycsikszentmihalyi
