My next hub will be about the zone. I have compiled all of my ideas on paper. I just have to find the time to write it up, which will be very soon. Meantime, let me pose this question: What does "being in the zone" mean to you? And have you ever been in the zone?
Cool Topic...Wish I would have thought of it. I have to say...about the zone...on a big scale....that is...In my life when I could always see that when I was in a certain "zone" where things were clicking...it was always about to make a change! Maybe...most folks could agree with what I just said. In sports activities and in writing...being in a "Zone" is a great place to be. But...also as fleeting...
In my rodeo days, I remember being in the zone ONCE on a saddle bronc and ONCE on a bull. Unfortunately, the saddle bronc ride was practice only, and the bull--who was supposed to be awesome; just ride 'im and win--wasn't as impressive enough to the judges that night.
Oh, yeah, and once in a fistfight when I was punching out my drug using, bad attitude son.
Um, and once in a bowling alley, the only over-200 game I've ever had. (218, NOT a 300 game).
Oh, yeah again, and fighting a wildfire once, slapping down flames with a shovel.
Let me thank you all for your replies. I agree with all of you. However, I think we only covered two aspects of "being in the zone": peak of concentration and and things clicking just right. I can think of two more, which I will reveal in my article on being in the zone either tomorrow evening, of course, after I watch the golf championship or on a latter day. Meantime, see if you can come up with the other two aspects of the zone that you think I have in mind. Again, thanks to all of you!
