Coping with boredom at work

The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom”
Arthur Schopenhauer 

Because all modern jobs are easy work can be pretty boring.

Here are my top five ways to deal with your boredom at your McJob:

1 – quit and do something more fulfilling (come on you knew I’d say that!).

2 – schedule fake meetings with your friends. Go to a meeting room and talk about interesting stuff.

3 – run a small business on the side. I mean seriously, who would know. Even if they figure it out chances are they won’t care.

4 – sign up for internal skills training in anything and everything of use or of interest to you.

5 – learn to meditate with your eyes open.

What is your secret to cope with workplace boredom? Come on folks help a brother out!!
