Easily Bored?

Eye red ERIC KIM

A thought while looking at the new McLaren Artura hybrid super car:

Assuming you buy the best car which exists… how long before you bore of it?

Which makes me think more about boredom in general:

  1. Boredom of our devices, cars, cameras, tools, phones, laptops, etc
  2. Boredom of our home, city, neighborhood, etc
  3. Boredom of certain designs, clothes, fashions, etc

What is the meaning of being easily bored? And are there some virtues of being easily bored?

What would life be like if you never bored of anything?

If we never bored of anything, we would just be like cows. Happily munching on grass, with no need to change anything.

So certainly the root of human innovation, motivation and entrepreneurship is our penchant for boredom.

How to deal with boredom?

I believe the optimal strategy is to harness and channel your boredom towards more epic adventures, towards your artistic creations and production. To challenge more, attempt more, and become more!
