Need Inspiration? Let Yourself Get Bored!
Entrepreneurs talk of all sorts of things that sparked their inspiration and led them to create their business. From an apple falling from a tree and knocking them on the head to solving a irritating problem to just plain and simple seeing a gap in the market.
On the other hand, one of the ways I find inspiration is to simply let myself get bored. Yep, it’s as easy as that. You might not realise it but we’re all so busy and likely to have so many distractions around us, it’s often rare that we actually get bored anymore. I bet when you’re stuck somewhere with nothing to do you’ll whip out your phone and occupy your time somehow. That’s good – but not all the time.
Letting your mind wander allows you to reflect on your experiences, solve problems and think freely without any external pressure. That’s a rarity. So, if you find yourself trying to force an idea or train of thought – just set some time in the day where you’ll have absolutely nothing to do with zero distractions. You likely find it a refreshing change for your mind.
