TED Talk: How Boredom Can Lead to Brilliance
Our digital-driven society, constant e-mail and app checks, and social media addictions just might be robbing us of our creativity. In this TED Talk (Video) featuring Manoush Zomorodi, you’ll learn how boredom can lead to your most brilliant ideas. As summarized on the TED Talks Channel, “Do you sometimes have your most creative ideas while folding laundry, washing dishes or doing nothing in particular? It’s because when your body goes on autopilot, your brain gets busy forming new neural connections that connect ideas and solve problems. Learn to love being bored as Manoush Zomorodi explains the connection between spacing out and creativity.” Watch the video and browse TED.com for additional talks and information about the speaker.
