Bill Gates stands as a role model to quite a number of people, no matter the nationality and one of his most famous quotes is; “I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.”
It is quote that should cause people to pause, become introspective and consider the reasons behind such logic. We want to help that process along its way and give you five reasons why a lazy person is set up for success.
They Know How To Use Technology Because It Allows Them To Be Lazy
Thankfully in this era, there are a lot of programs, applications and gadgets that allow people do their jobs much more easily and certainly quickly. A lazy person knows all the loops and cheats that these technologies present in the sense of beating time.
For this reason, instead of editing a document manually, such a person would more likely pass it through an editing software that will do more of the nitty-gritty work for them, like correcting spellings and then read the resultant document which would understandably be much easier to edit and correct. That way, they have more time to be lazy for a bit longer.
They Must Be Clever
You cannot be lazy if you are not clever, at least not if you still want to eat and have money, this type of efficient laziness takes special and often honed skill. You will need to find ways to do nothing for a while and then miraculously complete all your given tasks in time.
They Are Much More Relaxed
Lazy people do not rush, it almost seems like a secret rule that they have. They don’t jump from task to task haphazardly, they tend to take their time on each task and get to the next whenever they are ready. We don’t know how, but they have fewer worries and calmly do their jobs.
They Are Inventive
It is said that necessity is the mother of invention and this must be especially true of a lazy person who has bungled away and exhausted every time opportunity and suddenly gets very creative.
They show an uncanny skill of skipping the unnecessary and getting straight to the point. They will also tend to find a way to automate and optimize all the repetitive processes in their jobs and run with the craziest of crazy ideas.
They Know When And How To Rest
A lazy person is an expert at relaxation. While most people strain and stress themselves to a breaking point, a lazy person knows how to take and maximize appropriate and even inappropriate breaks.
So there you have it, five reasons a lazy person is most likely set up for success. It must be said though, that laziness is something every one has to a bigger or lesser extent, it is just a matter of knowing when it is necessary to get up and go and to make sure that in the go periods, you are giving it your very best.
