Boredom drives creativity for no other reason than that your mind needs something to latch onto in idle times.

When you’re bored, anything goes. Ambiguity and hyperbole are the name of the game. Your mind loves stretching the imagination and failing reality.

Sometimes people are too corrupted by reality and everydayness. To perceive something that doesn’t even exist is a bicep curl for the innovative brain.

So try this: take a seat, put the phone down, and do nothing. You’ll have no choice but to think outlandish thoughts to keep yourself entertained.

Do nothing for as long as possible. From Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies #books #creativity #writingprompts
