The key to harnessing the power of boredom is to see the doldrums for what they are — quiet clarions to the possibility of change.
Most of us would rather be brilliant on purpose, than accidentally so. The focus is usually on WHAT you do and HOW you do it, but knowing WHEN and WHERE you are at your best is just as valuable as knowing what and how.
The whole process of resolving to change might take on new power and meaning if we look for new solutions to old problems. Rather than trying to fix today’s problems with yesterday’s answers, maybe what we need is to RE-solve the issue.
