There’s this friend of mine who drives me NUTS.

Let me show you why.


Whatever suggestion I say shortly gets brushed aside and instead becomes replaced by Youtube videos revolved around eating competitions and cute animals.

And the worst part is, he’d say it again next week.

I’m bored.


The truth behind “boredom”

When you’re bored, you have too much time. And when you try to use up your extra time to fulfill that “emptiness” (through Youtube, Facebook, or any medium that sucks your attention dry), you waste the only life you have.

Time is precious. Life is short.

There’re so many ways time could be spent, yet most of us choose temporary satisfaction instead of figuring out how we can improve our current situation and live the dream we’ve always wanted.

If you want to get anywhere in life, if you want to stop boredom from crippling your potential, why not do more? Why not go for the bigger things in life?

  • creating your own business
  • building a groundbreaking product
  • writing content that could impact millions
  • uncovering your hidden talents
  • improving your flaws
  • finding ways to boost your career

Because when you have something you genuinely want to work towards, you won’t ever feel bored.

Likewise, if you don’t have a big enough goal to pursue, you’ll always feel bored.

I’m rebuilding my life by discovering who I am, learning what I’m capable of after a 9 year heartbreak that left me stranded in China.

    This is fantastic! I struggle with this all the time. It’s not boredom… It’s distraction from doing greater things.
