Mercury Moments

What was the most fulfilling job or task you ever had? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1598).

The activity I like most is when time seems to fly by.  I have long ago learned that jobs aren't characterized by all positives--every job has positives and negatives.  In this light, I have had many jobs in which I have encountered strong positive aspects.  Time flies by for me when I am, to use an athletic expression, "in the flow."  Focus and facility of personal resources unite imbuing the task with an ongoing sense of accomplishment, confidence, challenge, creativity, and even ease.  To use an old expression, all cylinders seemed to be firing smoothly and effortless.  This has occurred in such diverse activities as computer programming, customer relations, purposeful conversation, listening, reading, writing, even focused trial and error iterations.  On  such occasions I look back and ask, "Where has time gone?"
