Do You Do Better Work When You’re Bored, Or Busy?

@naval recently suggested ‘You’ll do better work if you’re bored rather than busy’.

I’m not sure I completely agree with that.

Sure, I understand the logic. Which is, if you’re busy then there can be a tendency to rush through things and thus not create your best work.

But we also need to factor in Individuality and Losing your edge.

If we stay bored for too long, we can lose our sharpness, our edge.

Also, some people simply work better in the chaos. Thinking and acting on their feet just allows them to produce their best work.

It’s important to understand the environment in which you do your own best work.
