Bored and Brilliant
How Spacing Out Can Unlock your Most Productive & Creative SelfBook - 2017
In 2015 Manoush Zomorodi, host of WNYC's popular podcast and radio show Note to Self, led tens of thousands of listeners through an experiment to help them unplug from their devices, get bored, jump-start their creativity, and change their lives. Manoush explains the connection between boredom and original thinking, exploring how we can harness boredom's hidden benfits to become our most productive and creative selves without totally abandoning our gadgets in the process. Grounding the book in the neuroscience and cognitive psychology of the 'mind-wandering'--what our brains do when we're doing nothing at all--Manoush includes practical steps you can take to easy the nonstop busyness and enhance your ability to dream, wonder, and gain clarity in your work and life.
