The Power of Boredom, Breaks and Creativity

The Power of Boredom, Breaks and Creativity

Let’s face it. Boredom has a bad rap.

Or, at least it had a bad rap with me for the longest time. I grew up thinking that there was almost nothing worse than being bored. So, I worked, and I worked, and I busied myself, and I did everything I could to try and stay two steps ahead of the old boredom curse.

You Only Get One Life – Start Taking Action!

You Only Get One Life – Start Taking Action!

One of my favorite pastimes is to sit looking out at the ocean. I love the sound of the waves as they reach the shore.

I’ve observed that some of the waves come crashing in with an abundance of energy and force behind them. While others don’t make much of a fuss as they barely reach the shore. The waves parallel the differences in the way we live life.
