How it works

Book a session

Research shows that you are more likely to achieve your goals when you pre-commit to it.

Show up

Willpower is overrated. Instead, draft off the energy of other people who also care deeply about their work.

Share your goals

The simple act of sharing what you're going to do with someone else sets up external accountability and increases the likelihood that you'll get it done.

Start working

When the timer begins, the host will play focus-inducing music while everyone begins the muted, deep work segment. The music is optional, but doing your best to knock out the task at hand is not.

Debrief & Celebrate

Your session host will check in with you and bring the positive vibes. Not everyone hits their goals, but everyone made progress. We celebrate that.

Why Flow Club?

Hit your goals

Sometimes you need that extra boost to start (or finish) a project. By speaking your goal in front of others, you are much more likely to do what you intend.

Get in the flow

The formula for flow state is motivation, skill, and positive feedback. We've created our sessions to deliver these elements so you can feel productive and happy.

Turn it off

The better you work, the better you rest. Our hope is that our sessions help you focus and accomplish more, so you can rest and focus on the other things in your life that matter.

Hit your goals

Our proven methods help you manage distractions, raise your energy, and get unstuck.

Feel good about work

Research shows that getting into flow state, or the feeling that you are "in the zone" when working improves your mood and raises self-esteem.

Have more time for what matters

Feeling confident that you've made the most of your time working helps you spend more and higher quality time on the other things that are meaningful to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Flow State?

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Professor of Psychology at Claremont Graduate University, published "Flow" in 1990, the seminal text on flow state based on decades of research. In Csikszentmihalyi's words, flow state is “a state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter." In flow state, anxiety and your ego drops away, and you improve your ability to direct your attention. The key to feeling in flow is to identify activities that are just challenging enough for your skill level, and progressing to bigger challenges as your skills expand.

Flow Channel

As modern knowledge workers, we rarely get to experience flow state. Even more elusive is the sense of progression and mastery of your work. When was the last time you felt accomplished? Do you feel like you are better than you were a month ago? The pursuit of flow state reminds us to asks these questions about the work we do everyday, and Flow Club is where we gather to do it.

How do you know that your method works?

Flow Club’s method is based on the popular Pomodoro Technique, which millions of workers around the world practice on a daily basis. The Pomodoro Technique helps people overcome discomfort by working in small time increments of 25-minutes, followed by a 5-minute of break. In Flow Club, the most popular length of session is 50 minutes.

Research shows that we put off work not because we are lazy or lack discipline. We do it to avoid negative feelings like overwhelm and uncertainty. We reach for distractions to soothe our negative feelings or busy work to help us feel productive. Instead, the Pomodoro Technique helps you focus by shrinking your goal down to the next few things you can do in the time allotted, making it easier for anyone to make real progress.

Who are the hosts?

Our hosts are volunteers from the community. Hosts help lead each session, check in with you on your progress, and bring their music and positivity to help propel you forward. You can be a host too after 10 sessions.

Do I have to keep video on?

Yes, as much as you can. Of course, if you need to turn off the camera, that’s okay. As a community, we keep our videos to create an energetic virtual environment for each other while we work, like working at a cafe! This concept is actually called body doubling and is a useful technique for everyone to remain focused, present and reduce distractions.

The video boxes are small, and no one is looking at you because everyone is focusing. In case things go wrong, we enforce our community guidelines to keep out bad behavior.

How much talking is required?

Not much at all because we gather to focus on getting stuff done. We share our goals and progress with each other to keep each other accountable, that’s all.

How strict are your sessions’ rules?

Flow Club’s aim is to support diverse working styles. We believe that you know what works best for you. To this end, you can use the session structure as it suits you.

Most people tend to stay for the whole duration and keep their video on, because it is helpful to them to do so. If you need to join late, hop out early, or turn off video, that is completely fine with us. This is a tool that’s here to serve you, not the other way around.

Our sessions provide the flexibility for you to:
• Join at any time as long as you have booked the session in advance.
• For new trial members, we offer even more flexibility so that you can drop in and try out a session without booking in advance.
• Turn your video and audio on and off.
• Leave a chat message to your fellow attendees if you are joining late or jumping out early.

I'm already productive working solo. How will Flow Club challenge me?

In Flow Club you are still working solo. What Flow Club adds is a layer of structure and external accountability to help you push yourself a little harder. It’s like going to the gym by yourself versus going to a workout class. You’ll find lots of high performers like yourself in Flow Club, and you’ll be surprised by how much more you get done.

How is it possible that strangers keep me accountable?

To be clear, it’s still you who is keeping yourself accountable! There’s just no way around that. 🙂

But, it’s also clear that we are social animals. Many people work better when they are in the presence of others. The host in the room asks each participant to share their goals out loud. The act of sharing and being visible to others creates enough energy for our members to get started and to follow through.

How should I prepare for Flow Club sessions?

Take a moment to think about what you need to do, and then figure out the smallest first step you can take. Then simply join a Flow Club on time to get it done.

How is this different from video chat with friends?

Flow Club is a live, structured experience with specific choreography that is easy to participate and host in. As a member, you’ll find that it’s much, much easier than organizing your own group.

We've thought through details to help people focus and remove overwhelm:

Flow Club's Schedule
Flow Club’s predictable schedule helps you create consistent daily routines. You can book ahead to help you block out time.

Calendar Reminders
We send you a calendar invite so that you can make an appointment with yourself and others to remind you to show up. Your teammates will also respect your time because it appears as a meeting.

To-do List
The To-do list doesn’t carry over, which helps you start fresh each time.

Small Videos
Videos help people feel present. We display them in limited width and height so that they aren't overly distracting. Controls such as on/off toggles and background blur support your changing needs.

How much is Flow Club?

$40 / month or $33.33 / month (paid annually) to access hundreds of live sessions every week

Why does Flow Club charge for a subscription?

Flow Club’s subscription model makes it so that you can keep up the habit consistently without attendance limits.

Do you buy coffee to be around others while you work? Do you pay for services to help you increase your productivity and focus, or address issues with distractibility? Then, Flow Club instead! $40 might be similar to the cost of a fitness class or two, and at this price you get access to unlimited sessions every month. Flow Club is mental fitness for work!

Your subscription will help pay for the constant learning and improving that our team does to provide this platform.
