I’m not one to get bored, ever … but a number of readers have written in with the question: What do I do if I’m bored out of my skull at work?

So the short answer: just find things to entertain yourself. Keep your mind busy. Challenge yourself. Talk to somebody. Break out of your mold.

Just some things I’ve done to keep my mind busy — pick and choose those that might work for you.

Create a new challenge

Pursue your next job

List your life goals

Pursue a hobby

Make your work a game

Educate yourself.

Improve your skills

Play Sudoku

Choose a soothing desktop picture.

Do some pushups and crunches

Call a loved one

Start writing your novel.

Take a nap

Create a new project or role.
