Recent observation: boredom paradoxically comes from pushing yourself way too hard. You always want to get to the next thing and the next thing, and pretty soon you’re worn out, but resting seems wrong. So you stagnate, you keep pushing yourself but become unwilling to commit to any particular pathway because it will be too troublesome. I haven’t found a permanent solution yet, but taking a nap always seems to help.
Just what are we all trying to achieve with all that pushing?
