— Your work/life has hit a hardspot and repeating the same mechanical efforts over and over has caused you to lose focus.

If I ever feel bored I think something must be wrong because there is always something to do in my life or in life alone. Boredom is an excuse in my book.

1. Decide to get there. 2. Keep going until you arrive. (If you get knocked down, get up, and keep going until you arrive.)

The last sentence = classic. (especially the last two words)

You nailed it except the bordom is replaced with a bit of anxious thoughts on how to finish the project and hang in. I will have to drop back, put on hold, pause the project which drains the momentum and I seem to lose sight of the steps needed. (Lost on the mountain) It eventually comes together... just not in the way I would like to have it. Sometimes success shows up disguised as disappointment. Never, never, never....quit. Thanks for the words of truth to find the way .

| Bored... |
Wow. Bored. Haven't felt that since I was a kid. I usually feel like there's not enough time to do everything that I want to do. My mother would say "You're not bored- you're boring".

Hi Michael! It's NOT boredom for me...excitment..however, when projects feel overwhelming and creativity low..I just pull away from it for a moment..refresh myself and then start to chip away at it and it all comes back, even more so. More joyful than duty..I don't think "overwhelm me".. I just think one idea leads to another idea..I guess also, I am excited and curious about the exploration of it all. It's a beautiful thing after all...to be able to create. Have an awesome day. Rachel

| Spot on |
You're always so spot on Michael, it's scary. However, what does one do when it's not boredom/laziness that has led to the culprit of the above excuses, but instead exhaustion/close burnout due to the excessive climbing of the uphill rocky roads we're traversing? How does one turn that mentally and physically depleted-energy state into something fresh that can create more new energy than that which we put in, and push us forward, out of that square box, even at near-exhaustion levels? You still have to have the energy to be able to go 2 steps forward when you know you're going to end up at least 1 step back, and then you need to be able to keep repeating the process. Anyway thanks for sharing.

When I get bored with a project, I know that only "I" can generate excitement again. I go back to my journal of notes and reignite the flame.

Boredom translates as feeling "lost," with all of the above excuses. Some of it Is feeling overwhelmed with all the choices that cloud my thinking. I actually "stall," afraid to make a move. Thanks for the encouragement.

| lost control |
When something bores me, it's frequently because someone has taken over control and stolen it away from me.
