Do you ever feel that never getting bored cripples your creativity?
Say what????????????????????????????????????????????I don't get it!
I wouldn't use the word 'bored', but I do think nonstop writing is hard on my creativity, so I take a break from it sometimes.
It can get to be a grind, and then there's nothing left for the stuff I care about--the creative writing, I mean.
I am never able to get bored, so I get the question totally. Between kids, work, school and writing, my life is non-stop. The result is a lack of boredom. I do think that a lack o boredom cripples my creativity. Because I never get bored, I don't have much time to stop and think or imagine.
I miss not being able to imagine because imagination fuels creativity. Sometimes things happen when you least expect, and boredom often fuels exploration, which also leads to creativity. I hope I can get bored soon, I need it!
Finding interest in everything can and does cripple your creativity. Your mind must be at ease in order to create. It doesn't fully compromise you but it still hurts you.
If you are never bored that means you are constantly active, creating, adventuring, working, doing, thinking, reading. How would this cripple your creativity? I feel that it would boost creativity, especially if you're looking at it in terms of hubbing.
You are busy making dinner for your family and decide to do something different tonight. Think about the steps you are taking and how you could turn it into a step-by-step recipe.
You're focusing on driving to work and the car in front of you has "Just Married" painted across the back window. You start thinking about the people in the car and how their wedding went.
You're a student cramming for a class, you're thinking about how you could explain the topic to your friend in a simple way (this is actually a good way to learn something yourself). It would be good hub material.
Being bored cripples my creativity. It means I'm having trouble thinking of something to do. If I can't think of something to do how am I going to think of something to write.
I guess it depends what you are doing, and how much stress you are under. I do not really feel like I am adventuring. Every spare second I have is problem solving. It is exhausting. Trying to coordinate everything limits the ability to be creative.
absolutely right...getting bored means you are free of tension & you have enough time to think over innovtive ideas..that keeps your mind & body active & energitic for ever!
It is said that the only people who get bored are boring people. I'm not sure if that's true, but there's at least a little some truth to what that saying implies.
"Never getting bored" would suggest that a person has too many interesting thoughts to be bored (but also knows enough to stay away from things that bore him, which is a sensible/wise thing to do, of course). I'm not sure forcing oneself to be bored would lead to the kind of mood/thinking that would encourage creativity.
I don't know how creativity "works" for other people; but for me, the last thing that comes from my feeling rotten is creativity - and being bored is essentially feeling at least mildly rotten.
There's a difference between "getting-away-from-rat-race-thinking" (or even "adventurous-activity thinking") and being calm enough to encourage creativity. Then, too, being busy and active doesn't always mean a person doesn't have creativity "brewing" as he does what it is he's doing.
So, basically, I still go back to the thing that feeling bored is a negative thing to feel; and the person who (for one reason or another) doesn't feel bored very often may be more likely to be creative than the one who deals with boredom on a more regular basis. You know that thing they say, "A body in motion stays in motion"? I'd venture to assert that a mind in motion stays in motion too.
