One thing I notice that always proceeds a HUGE uplevel/shift for me…🔥
Is that I become BORED TO DEATH with something that I’ve been doing, or how I’ve been showing up, or the monotony of something.
It’s funny, because typical creatives have full permission to admit this. Musicians, actors, artists, dancers – they all get bored and tired of doing the same ole thing…and reinvent.
Coaches or Entrepreneurs who are creative though? Rarely do we see them feel comfortable admitting this.
Creatively for me, boredom usually happens because I’ve mastered something(s). Mastery will eventually become monotony- and this cues me to find, discover or invent something totally new that makes me think, see and choose in novel, innovative ways.
(This is typical for Bridge and Rebel archetypes by the way….Freedom is our motivation, so Boredom is our marker that it’s time to break rules, bust free from something… and go bigger, so we can experience more Freedom.)
And transparency: I’m BORED.
Bored by Facebook. By the coaching industry. Bored by “standard operating procedures.” By junk information. By rules, including some of my own. By opinions, including some of my own. I’m bored to tears of marketing, branding, hashtags -pretty much all the conventional ways of business.
And SO…I’m in the middle of breaking a lot of rules behind the scenes…and it feels pretty fucking liberating.
So…know what that means…look out world….something new, wild and exciting is on the way 🔥
What Does Boredom REALLY Mean?
