We introduce a futuristic vision of a Document-centered Personal Information Space. However, even without the fu turistic part of the vision, the underlying paradigm can in stantly improve the conditions for a phenomenon at work, called flow. Flow provides those who enter into it, with a high efficiency and satisfaction at work. The vision and its required preconditions are considered a paradigm, for which a corresponding framework is provided, broken down into a structure of four main elements.
