The Deliberate Practice of Boredom

We spend so much of our mental energy trying to optimize our time or improve our creative productivity, but boredom is necessary, even crucial, for our creative work. When we, as designers, learn this in our lives we’ll be making tech that is better for others. As creatives, the best way to improve our creativity is by deliberately adding boredom and “fallow” time to our schedules. 

Jeannie, in her talk, will guide you in defining the right kind of boredom that will help you design better. She will also give you practical suggestions on how to deliberately practice this. You’ll learn to consciously schedule in non-work, non-play time, so that you can find value and empathy in wait-times.
