It becomes boring when you've made a lot of money from it. This is no joke. When you're starting out, of course you have goals. Once it's been reached, you'll think "what should I do now?"

If you get bored then you're probably not making enough money or you're waisting your time . The rout can also be boring but you need to keep motivated so you can be
efficient .

So far music and ambition proved to be great cures for my boredom .

Sometimes it is very boring, especially when there is only one person. But the network is developed, when I bored I can find a lot of interesting things on the network.

How much money is enough? But anyway, money isn't everything - at least not when you have enough to live comfortably. When making money isn't fun you get bored, even if you make enough and don't waste time.

It is important you are enjoying the work you are doing.However I did not find myself in a boring situation yet because I am getting my desired success in the fields I am working.

When I get bored I remember every day when my dad counted off the days til he could leave the job he hated and had absolutely no control of, but did because he had to provide for us.

It's hard for me to work for hours and hours straight. I usually work for about 20 to 40 minutes and then take a 30 minute break as a refresher. I go through this process throughout the day. I'm not sure if this counts -- sorry!

I usually pick up random hobbies in between web projects to keep my mind fresh and entertained. I just recently started playing Red Dead Redemption for PS3 and after several days straight of non-stop gaming I was ready to jump online and get back to work. The idea of making money and getting rewarded for my efforts is enough to keep me motivated. And the thought of ever getting a job and having a boss is enough to scare me back into action.

I loved building one of my businesses. Now, when it looks like it's mature and growth has all but stopped, I've lost interest. I have to put on videos during the afternoon while I'm shipping or I go to sleep. I would like to grow this business further but I haven't been able to figure out how.

I allow myself to start one new project a month and so far that's kept me motivated.

Thats why one must multiple projects, even though its somewhat hard to micro manage.
But if you get somewhat bored with one project, you can always move to the next one and work on that and come back to your original project when you're bored with that.

I'm shipping right now and simultaneously watching "Hoarders."

It's horrifying enough to keep me awake.

I am a HUGE OFFENDER of getting bored when it comes to projects. Here's the solution I found:

When I start a project, I make sure it is one of those things that will become turnkey/automated. That way I can have fun creating it and getting it going, but then I can just leave it to run itself

If you are not doing what you like and you are not excited and passionate about that then you get bored. When you do what you like then you're not working you're playing and like all kids you never get bored

It does get boring sometimes. I find myself on the computer playing games instead of getting work done.

That reminds me of this story told by one of my students - http://heelhook.wordpress.com/2011/0...r-in-tae-baek/

Pretty awesome story if you ask me.
