If your job bores you, either switch occupations or take steps to energize your approach. Like what? 1. Learn more and more about your field (you'll never meet a bored expert). 2. Confront hard challenges and overcome them (a proven perscription for boredom). 3. Throw yourself into projects you passionately believe in. 4. Set tough goals for yourself. In short, become too busy to be bored.
