The "bored room"

I just got word that a longtime friend of mine just lost his seat on the Board of Directors for a fairly large company – a post he held for many years.

While I certainly feel badly for him, he is the one that first shared the spelling of “the bored room” with me – telling me maybe he was just really bored.  I don’t think people do well with boredom.  Especially not a manager, or member of the Board – they need to be leaders – they need to inspire.  They can’t afford “bored”.  Or they get “booted”.

He got booted, and I know he’ll understand me saying, “What did you expect? You were bored”.
