This boredom thing, in conversation design terms, is a Mood. Moods are assessments about the future - part of the assessment is a declaration or assessment about an expected state in the future, and the other part is a declaration of how you feel about that expected state. A Mood of Wonder is an assessment that you don't know what is exactly going on or what the future holds, but you like that. Conversely, a Mood of Confusion is the same assessment of the future - don't know what's going on - coupled with displeasure.
You can always choose to design your future. Strategic Venture Consulting's Conversation Driven Business(TM) can help you expand and improve your organization's future by designing and optimizing its network of conversations and increasing its conversational competence.
