How To Never Be Bored Again

Boredom Isn’t All Bad

  • Spend time sitting and doing nothing
  • Go for a walk without headphones
  • Go somewhere without your phone

Pick One: Create Or Consume

  1. Create
  2. Consume

Create

  • Create a mind map of projects you’d like to work on.
  • Create a website mockup based on your favorite book, podcast, hobby, pet.
  • Build that website using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • Build something to develop your coding knowledge.
  • I found a great idea that I want to try out sometime in the future: creating a Kanto Pokedex in React JS.
  • Create a video based a topic you find interesting.
  • Record yourself having a discussion with a friend or family member.
  • Create something that solves a problem you have.

Consume

  • Read a book you wouldn’t normally pick. If you enjoy non-fiction, give a fiction book a try.
  • Listen to a podcast on a topic that interests you.
  • Watch a YouTube video that teaches you how to do something.
  • Start an online course that teaches you something new.
  • Join the library so you can check out books and audiobooks for free.
  • Watch a documentary on something you’d like to learn more about.

Take It To The Next Level: Combine Create + Consume

  • When you finish your online course about starting a podcast, start a podcast based on your love of Pokémon, or Web Development, or Gaming.
  • Based on what you learned from the documentary you watched, create a blog post or a YouTube video.
  • After listening to a number of audiobooks, start sharing your thoughts on social media to see who else has similar opinions.
