There is no smaller package in all the world than that of a man all wrapped up in himself.

Boredom

Boredom can play a powerful, positive role in your life. Allow yourself the opportunity to regularly experience it.

After a while, nonstop activity and stimulation will blur into meaninglessness. Too much of anything is not a good thing.

Give yourself time and space to process all that’s going on in your life. Give yourself the chance to imagine, to reconsider, to wonder, to wander, to relax.

Step aside from the destructive illusion that you can have it all, see it all, do it all. Take a breath, take a rest, and reconnect yourself with meaning, with purpose.

Winning is not a matter of grabbing everything there is to grab, of knowing all there is to know. Winning at life means living it well, with balance, with quiet, peaceful times to make sense of it all.

Times of boredom help you discover who you are, what you love, and how much you care. And those are extremely powerful things to know.

— Ralph Marston
