Fighting Boredom

There are times when everything is going right, yet you just kind-of feel bored. Maybe you thought there was more than what you are living, or you think that all the things you thought you wanted turned out to be the same as the things you had.

That happens to me sometimes. Not often, of course, I’m generally quite smooth. But every now and then, I feel a real sense of ennui.

To combat that, at least for now, I seek short term change. I’ll hit the gym hard for a week. I’ll go on a weekend trip with my wife. I’ll try to reach above myself to talk to some impressive people.

Those challenges, at least short term, help with the boredom. Then, of course, some exciting project or opportunity reveals itself and I can get into life without feeling so bored.
