Boredom

“Humans are more capable than other animals” said my son yesterday after reading one of his books.

“I am bored. I am not happy with what I am doing” said a coachee in a coaching call a few minutes later.

I couldn’t help but notice the irony of it! Though we are more capable, we seem to be much more discontent.

What I have learnt over the years is that boredom or discontent is great sign. Something within is telling us that things are not fine. That we are not aligned with who we are. That what we are doing is not aligned to what we want to do.

These are great moments to introspect. To use our capabilities to change things and bring ourselves joy.

Do you feel bored during the day? What do you do then?
