A new book was released last fall called Bored and Brilliant: How Spacing Out can Unlock Your Most Productive and Brilliant Self.
In this work, Manoush Zomodori uses cutting-edge research and examples from the lives of real people to demonstrate how more time to be bored can help you lead a life that is happier, more productive and more creative.
Yay Manoush! You hit the nail on the head!
I am so excited about the research that is continually being released on this topic–that time to allow our minds to wander–to have think-time–is the first step to gaining traction toward what matters most.
People are getting it. When we stuff so much into our lives that we are never bored, we are not getting more done. We are instead reducing our effectiveness!
When we let our mind wander, amazing things happen in our brain.
This week, ask yourself, “Am I bored?“ And if not, figure out how to get there. 🙂 Your best insights, productivity and relational breakthroughs will occur and your life will be changed.
How do you help yourself get bored?
p.s. Have you ever wanted to have a life-coach, but didn’t know where to start? A little think-time can change your life.
