Guggenheim Museum Guard Shares His Secrets of Combating Boredom

WNYC recently interviewed Greg Colon, a security guard at the world-famous Guggenheim Museum on how he combats boredom over his 8-hour daily shift, and his annoyance with museum visitors who spend more time looking at their phones than the fine art.

I’ll try and organize my day and think about what I’m going to do that night. Or, you know, meditating, prayer, looking at the painting of course. You’re in the best environment possible.

The video is part of a new WNYC series entitled Bored and Brilliant Challenge in which the viewer is asked to rethink their relationship with technology by accepting, and maybe completing, daily disconnect challenges.
