Synopsis

'Bored and Brilliant is full of easy steps to make each day more effective' Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit



It's time to move `doing nothing' to the top of your to-do list



Have you ever noticed how you have your best ideas when doing the dishes or staring out the window? It's because when your body goes on autopilot, your brain gets busy connecting ideas and solving problems.



However in the modern world it often feels as though we have completely removed boredom from our lives; we are addicted to our phones, we reply to our emails twenty-four hours a day, tweet as we watch TV, watch TV as we commute, check Facebook as we walk and Instagram while we eat. Constant stimulation has become our default mode.



In this easy to follow, practical book, award-winning journalist Manoush Zomorodi explores the connection between boredom and original thinking, and will show you how to ditch your screens and start embracing time spent doing nothing. Bored and Brilliant will help you unlock the way to becoming your most productive and creative self.

Manoush Zomorodi is the host and managing editor of Note to Self, "the tech show about being human," from WNYC Studios. Every week on her podcast, Manoush searches for answers to life's digital quandaries through experiments and conversations with listeners and experts. She has won numerous awards for her work including four from the New York Press Club. Her TedTalk has been watched over 1.3 million times. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
