12 Masterpieces by People Who Got Bored at Work

Procrastination can actually make you more creative and productive, at least according to Professor Adam Grant, author of Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World. By delaying the completion of tasks, we allow our minds to wander and come up with more ideas that are often better than our initial, more conventional ones.

Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech and Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address are a few famous examples of Grant’s theory in action – both were actually rewritten at the last minute.

Though not as famous but maybe equally as impressive, here are a few more examples of masterpieces created by people who got bored at work, or maybe just had too much time:
