Living A Lazy Life

I’ve always been lazy. And I’m lucky in the fact that I can be lazy and still get places. In high school, I was a B/C student with an A here or there. I did the bare minimum, I didn’t try very hard at all. I am pretty smart, just really lazy, so I was able to scoot by and still turn out okay and get into an okay college in the end.

And in college, nothing really changed. I was a little more inspired to do well, to learn more – but I was still lazy. I still put very little effort into most of my classes. The hardest ones to me were the math classes I was forced to take.

Because the laziest part about me is if things don’t come semi easy to me, I won’t try at all. Like in math – I just don’t get it. I don’t really want to get it.

When I sit down and try a new hobby, if I can’t have some substantial proof of okay-ness, I won’t keep trying. I’ve been forcing myself through crocheting because sometimes things turn out fine. But I mostly hate it because it doesn’t come easy to me, it’s something I have to learn, and I’m just too lazy to do that.

While I think I’m lazy, I’m also really hard on myself. If I wrote down a list of everything I did today, plenty of people would say that’s enough. But I know I could do more.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve tried to minimize my laziness. I get done everything I need to get done, I don’t procrastinate too much at work, I am on top of my responsibilities. But I don’t normally go above and beyond because of the laziness – it’s something I really need to work on.

  1. You did well in high school, went to college and did fine there, now you work full time (let me guess you do well there too but perhaps aren’t very motivated by it?), and on top of that like to challenge yourself with new hobbies, and you think of yourself as lazy?
    You sound smart and driven, but maybe still looking for something that inspires you. For example you seem passionate about writing, engaging others, expressing yourself and being creative – no laziness to be found there. Just my two cents.

  2. This is something I constantly struggle with, but I think it might be more of a perspective problem than a motivation problem. Like for example, I just stumbled across your blog, really enjoyed it, and saw a successful blogger. So maybe you’re not as lazy as you think?
