When we get older we confuse boredom with hunger. We’re bored, so we eat.
In our youth, it’s reversed – we confuse hunger with boredom.
In the first, we drift so far away from our best, we can’t recall the last time we were great.
In the latter, we are so hungry to do something great, but lack confidence and skill. So we get bored being ordinary and blending in, quit, and take our place in the line labeled mediocre.
