Boredom is a skill

Boredom is a skill. Doing nothing is the only way to avoid losing time. Because when you’re turned off, you’re turned on, reactivating and reconnecting memories of the past.

Reflection is at the heart of thinking. We don’t know what believe until we produce our own thought. Until then, our opinion is always stolen from someone else, solidifying in the echo chambers of social media.

We often demonize inaction but in today’s hyperconnected world, going offline is exactly the panacea we seek. Boredom is more fragile than the immediate pleasure of attention. Focus is the only way to protect against the cracks of distraction.

Write your way to the life you want.
