Boredom is good

If you are not content with the status quo you feel bored. Playing-meeting-after-meeting job is status quo; am-looking-for-a-good-startup-idea inertia is status quo; am-waiting-for-my-chance excuse is status quo. The status quo doesn't help anything. The status quo is just inertia.

By getting bored, your lizard brain is signaling to you that it’s time to change something, create something, or try something new. Boredom doesn’t depict lethargy; it depicts your discontent with the status quo. Boredom tells that you want to change the current situation. Your mind somehow knows that you can ignite a revolution and that’s why it’s signaling you to start something. Doing a mundane job without even realizing that you’ve become mechanical is bad, not boredom.

Boredom is good.
