Who has time to be bored??

Btw Eric congrats on the Big Think link:

As Eric Barker writes at TIME, one must undergo a context shift to cure boredom. It's a simple enough tactic. If you're bored alone, find someone to hang out with. If you're tired of how you look, go get a haircut. If the same ol' day-to-day routine has got you down, take a new route to work or pick up a hobby. Learn to juggle. Go jogging. Whatever. Tersely put, the thing that keeps you bored is staticity. The chronically blasé are those who are afraid to inject a little dynamism in their lives.
