Last Friday, my brilliant wife gave me a very clear instruction:
‘You need a weekend doing nothing.’ Doing nothing is alien to me; I’m always on the go.
But Christine is very good at making sure Michael doesn’t have a meltdown.
So, I listened.
After an hour of me doing very little, she asked how I was doing.
I claimed to feel… a little bored.
What she said next was brilliant, ‘Embrace the boredom.’
Isn’t that great? Just three words. I immediately flipped it and gamified being bored.
I embraced it.
I spent the next two and a half days embracing slowing down, pottering and basically being bored.
Just by adding ‘Embrace’, it’s amazing what you can flip.
Embrace not having
Embrace not being right
Embrace being hungry
Embrace not knowing
What else could you embrace?
I’ll send a copy of my book Flip It how to get the best out of everything to our favourite.
