Bored

Nikolay Mokhov, author from the Dark Side of Business

I once lived with a girl who knew the real nature of boredom.

- I'm bored to death! Tell me something ... ”, she said.

“Not now”, I stared at the wall. I wanted to think out an interesting idea.

“Why aren't you talking to me? When we started our relationship you always used to tell me such curious stories.

I started to have sex with her with a view of calming her down.
Moving back and forth, I thought out another idea. Unfortunately, I came up with the bright idea before the girl had come.

Boredom is an indicator that a person's inner world is so shallow that can't be compared even with a paddle after a small summer rain

-"Cuddle me!"

-"Just a moment. I need to make some notes".

The girl turned over on the other side and chatted something to her lover from Spain. I stumbled across this correspondence. I realized that I was a cuckold, and they loved each other. They were not bored then. Cheating breaks the routine.

Well, the girl had a relationship with a German, an American and someone else after our breakup. Sometimes I browsed her Instagram. Her colorful photos from Las Vegas, Barcelona, Paris told me that she would have never found her interest in her life. I picture the dialogues with her another boyfriend:

- I'm bored. Let's go somewhere!

- Shall we go to a restaurant? Let's go to White Rabbit.

- It's boring. We have already been there ...

- What about the theatre? Sobchak's husband has produced a new play where men masturbate on a girl.

-Fie, it's disgusting! No, I have no desire to watch how somebody will feel himself...

- What about the cinema?

-Just sitting and staring at the screen? We can do it at home ... Don’t you get it? I'm bored!

I don't envy this poor fellow. There exists a particular type of women. They are created in order to screw men’s brains out. Although boredom doesn't take into account any sex differences, it affects men and women regardless of age, sufficiency and busyness.


I don't recommend to live, run a business and even just chat with the people who are always bored. Boredom is an indicator that a person's inner world is so shallow that can't be compared even with a paddle after a small summer rain. Moreover, these bored fellas and tarts is a real gift for the Venereal Disease Research Laboratory. There is a huge probability that they will test positive for various sexually transmitted diseases.

However, these bored people hide their illness like the lepers who tried to conceal their festering noses in the past centuries. They can disguise themselves with their flattering remarks.

- It's so interesting with you! You are completely different!

It is hard not to believe in this statement because I know for certain that I am the best in the world. Nevertheless, a small test for identifying "the bored" has been discovered on the Dark Side.

- You know, I am sick of my car..

- When did you buy it?

- Six months ago...

Not everyone is ready to reveal their real attitude to other people. But their attitude to material things ... Who will hide it? It is interesting. If something bothers a person ... A car, a phone, a house ... Well, we all clearly understand that it is time to say to such a person the only appropriate word:

- Farewell!

Why so harsh? We have received hundreds of letters during the initial four years of the Dark Side.. All these letters are about energy ... Where to find it? We wonder how few people are able to reflect on where they have lost their energy. I declare with full responsibility and seriousness: you waste your energy on these shallow people. If there is a person who constantly complains of a shortage of money and emotions or who always complains of life... This person will devour your energy like the black holes devour the stars. It will continue constantly in large quantities. You can protect yourself from it in the only one way. Stop communicating with these people.

In addition to the spiritual sense, there is a practical reason. A greedy man will set you up for money, but a bored one only because of getting new emotions. The bored have no idea where, when, and how they will try their tricks on you... It's boring ... They will have fun. They will kick up their heels.



The Student

I’m watching time grinding big businesses to dust. Some of them I know quite well. Just yesterday, their owners used to think they were rich. Today they find out: a couple more months of quarantine and only dust will remain of all their treasures. And not golden dust — gray dust. Tomorrow, those who used to be held up as an example to all will be forgotten. New heroes will appear. Looking at these stories, I remember the words of my Teacher:

Whetstone for attention

— So the secret to success is to be in the right place at the right time?" - Someone asked in the Dark Side chat. How can I comment on this? Let me tell you about a multi-million dollar deal I once made. I'm not telling the story to show off as the money was already spent for parties in the city a long time ago — there is nothing to brag about. I'm telling the story to illustrate one principle.

So, here is the story. At a restaurant in Moscow, there was this construction businessman, his PR guy, and me. I had already handed over a report on my work. I was having some coffee, meanwhile listening to them discussing the promotion of business operations abroad.

Superstar of Conversational Writing

Oh! Were you expecting something? That’s odd. So many people gathered, and nothing’s happening. No-thing. Absolutely nothing. Can you imagine it? You might have thought we’d have a new text for you here, maybe even a story. One with elements of philosophical and theological discussion, one filled with real stories and adapted for practical use. So many expectations, and here I am, unprepared. I didn’t write a single word. It’s embarrassing, really. Well, don’t you worry. We’ll find something to “snack on”. I can’t promise a real feast of the mind, but there will be some food for thought. Like a diligent housewife who wasn’t expecting guests, I’ll have to come up with something on the spot. That’s not a problem. I just have to find the first Word. The second one will find itself. And before you know it, we’ll have enough for some salad and a couple sandwiches. It’s no Christmas dinner, sure, but if you pull out that bottle you have stashed away…

The Final Life Purpose

How do you find your purpose? This question torments the poor and the rich alike. And if someone thinks that once they earn millions and billions, they will no longer have to worry about it... I will run as fast as I can, fall, rub my knees (ouch!), and still keep running, just to make sure I'm there on time to disappoint the reader. The question of purpose weighs on anyone-regardless of the bank statement. And if the reader is curious, I'm going to tell a story about a very wealthy man.
