I am lazy


I am really lazy… you too should be!
I am really lazy… and who knows, one day civilization may progress due to me!

Did that sound stupid to you? Think again! Those who are not lazy, usually go about doing the same routine tasks daily. And most of them even feel proud about that. It is us lazy ones who bring about change, invent new ways to make our lives easier, and that is how civilization has progressed.

We need to be very clear about one thing here: we all usually have some work that has to be done. There are those “non-lazy” types, who will start right away and slog like a beast of burden till they have it done. But most work is repetitive; the most apparent way may not be the easiest. If you have to move a group of boulders, starting to push them right-away is not the best solution. The lazy types like me spend some time to find a couple of logs that you can roll under them.

Mechanical or routine jobs are meant for machines and should be entrusted to them. If you do the same thing everyday, there sure must be a way to make a machine do it. Of course in the real world this may not always be feasible… but when it comes to computers, you can automate all routine work. That is when it helps to know programming. No I am not evangelizing that you learn programming (it is always good to know it though), I am just saying that, any job needs some thought before you start of. That brings me to the, “I didn’t know” types. Oh, putting logs under that boulder would make it so easy to move it, I just didn’t know. You didn’t think. You didn’t even bother to find out the various possibilities. There are so many innovations taking place every day, you need to be looking out if you want to save yourself of some trouble. There are sufficient lazy people around the world trying to make life easier. Someone may have found a better way to do your tasks.

Ignorance is a crime. Laziness is not. Not to have the want to learn something, not to try out new methods to doing things is to get stuck back in time. But most of the “non-lazy” fellow beings seem to resist any change introduced to them. They love the routine. I simply hate it. I need things to keep changing. That is what makes life lively, worth living. A very common belief is that lazy people don’t change a thing, but it they who make most of the changes that matter.

Now what do you think!! Would you still look down upon laziness? I hope not!!

So, go ahead; be a less ignorant and more lazy and make your life worth living.

    I am just saying that a lazy mind is against progress… you have to try to make life easy if you want civilization to progress. Don’t just accept what it throws at you… fight back!

    Its in our genes.It started a long way back.Discovery of wheel is considered one of the greatest discoveries of all time.Would you call neanderthals lazy of walking????No.
    Take an example of remote control.Do you go all the way to your TV to change channel/volume just becauz you are not lazy???No.You dont.
