The Way to Beat Boredom

You may not be feeling bored at the moment (in fact I hope you're not), but boredom sometimes affects us. Maybe when our work isn't inspiring or challenging, we're in a conversation that doesn't interest us, or stuck in a meeting that's dragging on.
Here’s an approach you may want to try next time you find yourself in such an unhappy situation, and it’s summarised beautifully in this quote from the great American novelist Henry Miller:
“The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.”
So the next time you’re confronted by anything monotonous, give it (or them) really close attention.

You may discover something awesome, and you don’t have much to lose in the attempt.
