    Hi, Sarah and Evan –

    I have found that, for me, boredom comes around when I am forcing myself to finish what I feel obligated to do before allowing myself the freedom to do what I really want to do — when I’m not allowing myself to have any fun until ALL my work is done.

    For me, solving boredom has two steps: giving myself permission to play even if my work isn’t done; and auditing my list of things I feel obligated to do to make sure I really am obligated to do them (or if the obligation is valid).

    Thanks to both of you for this thought-provoking article!

    Hi Marie,

    thanks for your comment – I recognise this kind of boredom very well – not the boredom of not knowing what to do, but the boredom of slogging on once all the passion has gone out of an activity! Sounds as if you have a great way of dealing with the feeling…permission to play solves so many things :-)
