DAY FOUR Delete That App Take the one app you can’t live without and trash it. (Don’t worry, you’ll live.) Ask yourself: “Is this product serving me or hurting me?” When I asked myself that question, I knew I had to delete Two Dots, thegame I stayed up playing well past my bedtime. I wanted to delete it. And yet the process was literally nauseating. This was by far the hardest chal- lenge for the original Note to Self listeners who followed the Bored and Brilliant program—myself included. But if I can do it, so can you. DAY FIVE Take a Fakecation You’ll be in the office but out of touch. Decide how long you need. An afternoon? An hour? Twenty minutes? It’s up to you. If there’s no way your boss will let you off the grid for an hour or 20 minutes, set aside time for yourself tonight. The impor tant thing is to set a fixed period and to stick to it. DAY SIX Observe Something Else Reclaim the art of noticing. Go somewhere public and stay for a while. It could be a park, a mall, the gas station, a café, the hallway at work or school. Once you get there, hang out. Watch people or birds or anything that strikes you. If you feel uncomfortable lingering in a spot to observe, then you can do this exercise while walking. Just make one small observation you might have missed if your nose were glued to a screen. DAY SEVEN The Bored and Brilliant Challenge Use your new powers of boredom to make sense of your life and set goals. Step I. Identify an aspect of your life that you’ve been con- fused by, avoiding, or down- right terrified to think about. Step II. Set aside 30 minutes where you’ll be completely free from distraction. Store away your phone, tablet, laptop, or any other digital device. Put a generous pot of water on the stove and watch itcometoaboil.Orfinda small piece of paper and write “1,0,1,0” as small as you can until the paper is full. Step III. Immediately after you’ve completed Step II, and are mind-numbingly bored, sit down with a pen and pad and put your mind to the task of solving the problem identified in Step I. If you are a visual person, feel free to draw. If you’re a list maker, make a list. The point is to come up with new ideas and get them down on paper. ● Excerpted from Bored and Brilliant, by Manoush Zomorodi. © 2018 by Manoush Zomorodi.
