Is it so?Who would answer that? well, who is better than me to answer as I find I am the most laziest person I have ever met. So immediately I feel connected with this quote. In yoga classes we used to do breathing exercise, breath in and breath out. It never made me relaxed. In fact I felt breathing as the hardest workout. I just escaped from there. But if the quote need to be believed, I would definitely have died well before.
Mostly lazy people prefer calling somebody over phone rather than texting a long message. SMS language is their first add-on while they are forced to write. I use SMS language whenever I get the scope. Though I had stopped using it at work when one of the great testers I follow mailed me to say “You are one among very few testers who are active and want to think beyond the obvious. However, your usage of SMS language while you are writing might not make people think of you as a credible tester”…. My God and I know how I control while writing 🙂
I am attending drawing classes on Saturdays and my teacher gave me to draw one tree with lots of leaves. Not to check my drawing skills but to check my patience. Last week I drew an outline of an elephant. I was close but elephant’s feet touched the edges of the paper.So he rubbed the whole outline himself saying “you will not have the heart to rub it off, so let me do it”. I then drew it again. Means artists should not be lazy but who says that a lazy can’t draw(well I have a couple of drawings to prove that, check out the pics but of-course if you are not lazy like me). Let me tell you lazy are in fact more creative as they keep finding new ways to escape the loop.
Many people have told me that I can become a good writer. I said oh! plz! if I don’t like to read… how can I make others read? But see you are reading it…:) Last year when I was attending communication classes, we had been asked to write no. of times and teachers there used to say that I write well. But that’s not the point I want to make out. Even if I like writing or say can write, I don’t prefer intentional writing which needs thinking. Instead I wait for thoughts to come in a fashion and get written themselves. No mind exercises you see:)
You might be thinking of the title of this post. Well,I was telling everybody that I’ll write a book with the title “7 habits of lazy people” (plz read its lazy and not “highly effective” it just that I twisted the ready-made title). If still you are thinking about what are those 7 habits of lazy people, than let me tell you I am stuck at the first habit and couldn’t go beyond that as feeling lazy you know. And better you go somewhere else and read something meaningful rather than learning lazy habits here. Shame on you 😉
