Get Bored

I was recently given a unique take on boredom from Seth Godin’s work. He suggests we (at least those of us in Creative endeavours) have to starve the Creative of input, we have to “get bored”. This triggers the brain to find a way to entertain us. He suggests *that* is the time when the brilliance really comes to the fore.
I tried it. It really worked.

  1. Unfortunately I can’t recall which of Seth’s books this was from, and I’m not finding it on his blog. My apologies for poorly sourced random comments I make on the internet. I guess you’ll just have to read all his books if you need to know more.
