Obviously, being bored is no fun. I’ve never met anyone who aspired to boredom, but it happens. Some even readily admit they are bored. When my boys were younger, I told them that boredom was a choice, not a condition. There are too many interesting things in the world to make boredom an inevitability. But there is another danger to being bored: you bore others. If your team isn’t energized, you might be the reason.
How do you approach your work? Are your customers or clients bored? What energy do you bring to your interactions with others? Are family members bored? What do you do to create curiosity about the world they live in? Being bored isn’t good, but boring others is even worse.
