Pure and Utter Boredom
I've come to realize that the fear of boredom is unfounded. People should embrace boredom—it's freedom; you've completed your tasks and now, you've got an open slate. Fill it with whatever you want. I see boredom as a challenge: I find that one thing that I've put aside and I get to work. If that's nothing, then, very well, I do nothing. Unrestrained, uninhibited time should be a daily goal. Everyone should set aside blocks of boredom throughout life—you're given carte blanche with creativity. Personally, I think people fear boredom because they aren't interesting enough or have enough imagination to take the nothing and make it into the something.
