Habits - Amusement
The easily amused are never bored.
I'm not usually one for nonfiction books, but I've been reading The Power of Habit, and it is seriously fascinating. If you've read that story about Target figuring out a teen was pregnant before she told her family, or about how they learned to market Febreze, this is the book it comes from.

I find myself analyzing my routines now - my cues, my routine, my reward. I have some hope that it might help me set some better habits (it hasn't yet - I'm weak of will) - but also, it's really interesting to start recognizing these things in myself, and in my family.

The second half of the book talks about institutional habits, and how good ones lead to prosperity and poor ones can lead to disaster.

I recognize some of those, too.
