Is it true that if you want to be lazy and still get away, you need to hardwork for that also?

Asked by zykel (63points) February 15th, 2010

For example, you sleep too much and get up late and miss the college bus.But you may have to make up by traveling in the public transport where you have to walk a lot

Another example would be like you dont study regularly but the day before you burn the midnight oil too see to it that you get through

Being lazy means more hard work and sacrifice later. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend it. Unless you’re willing to give up significant amounts of sleep, energy, time and money.

Being lazy in college is also a wonderful way to say “hasta la vista” to a future you could have had…with a little more studying.

I prefer to think of it the other way around. I think truly lazy people are terribly efficient. They do all their work first, so they can laze around afterwards.

When I hire people, I prefer lazy people, because I think they work smarter and better and more imaginatively.

You need to hardwork for everything you need also for get away.

@wundayatta Interesting twist there…

You don’t necessarily need hard work…it’s just that the outcome of your work will most likely be only passable and not excellent like it could be.

@wundayatta. – I always thought of laziness as procrastination or lousy work. Could it be you like to hire wise time managers who savor leisure time and good work…rather than wasting it…?

@wundayatta I agree. I constantly come up with genius more efficient ways of doing things because I am so damn lazy.

work smart not hard :P

Most of the great inventions were made by people just trying to be lazy.

Isn’t work still involved in that scenario? Whoever invented the washing machine to avoid the wash tub still had to put the parts together…but I suppose the traveled Dark Knight has more of a grip on this subject… :)

@ArtiqueFox i agree there is still work. Sure you have to invest some time and thought initially but in the end its exponentially less hard work than if you hadnt gone out of your way to invent it.And why did you even decide to invent it in the first place? Cause you were fuckin lazy :P

But again, that’s inventions. Like for example me at work, I don’t invent things, I just think about smarter and easier (read lazier) ways of doing them.

@wundayatta I agree…I heard a great quote recently: “Organized people are just too lazy to look for things.” It’s true…you’re gonna have to put work in eventually if you want’s called lazy if you leave the work till the very end, or really lazy, if you never do it at all, but then you generally don’t get what you want.

El_Cadejo's avatar

id call leavin the work till the end procrastination, not necessarily lazy. Not doing it at all would be really lazy though.

Well maybe it depends on the type of work too.
