7 Reasons Why Lazy People Are More Likely To Be Successful by Girl360(f): 2:46pm On Jul 20, 2016
So being lazy isn't so bad after all...undecidedundecided


1.THEY ARE IVENTIVE

Lazy people are very creative when it comes to organizing their work. They don’t waste time on unnecessary things and get straight to the point. A lazy employee will always find a way to automate and optimize all the repetitive processes in their jobs. As there is nothing more annoying for a lazy person than a regular monotonous work.

Lazy people always try to make life easier. People were too lazy to scoop out the soil– they invented a digging machine. They were too lazy to do the cleaning – they
invented a vacuum cleaner. Who knows, maybe lazy people were the ones who invented all the great inventions of the century.



2.THEY ARE ENTREPRENEURIAL

Often lazy people are very enterprising.

They have many ideas and projects as their minds are not filled with excessive thoughts and responsibilities. They think in different categories. It is important for them that the work process is not boring and there are guaranteed results at the end.

3.THEY KNOW WHEN TO REST


The most important thing is to know when to relax, as the more energy people expend, the less you have of it to fulfil big plans. People who strain themselves all the time age faster; their memory is falling much quicker. Besides, some scientists think that getting up early if you are a night owl and making yourself exercise intensively has a destructive effect on your health, especially after you are 40. So, lazy people, relax and keep being lazy.




4.THEY ARE MORE RELAXED
Lazy people don’t rush everything and don’t jump from one thing to the other all the time. They take the time and get to task after task. While some people panic, their attention get distracted and they
don’t fully commit to tasks. Lazy people, on the other hand, have fewer worries and calmly do their jobs.
5.THEY KNOW THEIR GOALS

Lazy people know how to prioritize and to focus on their own goals, not on those imposed by other people. They are simply
too lazy to pay attention to other people’s priorities, so they focus on their own.

Besides, they spend much less time achieving these goals, as they will have more time to relax then.

6.THEY CANNOT BE BUT CLEVER

It actually takes a great mind to be lazy at work. You need to find ways to do nothing for a while and then to complete all the tasks in time. Employees tend to be
either smart or stupid, lazy or painstaking.

If you are smart and lazy, you probably are the most efficient worker in your company.
7.THEY USE TECHNOLOGY THAT ALLOWS THEM TO BE LAZY

In our time, there are lots of programs, applications and gadgets that allow people do their job much quicker. Lazy
people know about all those things and use them to get the tasks done twice as fast. For example, if they work on a
document, they wouldn’t just write it and then send it to lawyer, editor, manager and other people to check – that would
take a lot of time. They would just create a Google Doc, give people the access to the document so that they can approve or make any correction at the same time.

That would simplify the whole work process, save a lot of time and allow them to be lazy for a bit longer.



American professor Arnold Ludwig once analysed more than 1000 people who achieved the greatest success in their lives. He came to the conclusion that apart from having some natural talent, you need to be able to… waste time.

Surely, it may sound paradoxical for our century and lifestyle. However, even Einstein used to
say that boredom is a great tool for developing your imagination and creativity.

The key word here is being SMART, and well lazy.
Of course if you're lazy and you do not do anything to complement your lazy lifestyle, but you sit your a*ss down every single day, doing absolutely nothing at all, then you obviously can't be successful.

We're talking about people who are lazy, but are able to use their behaviour in order to be innovative.

And no, you don't need to be a workaholic to be innovative

once again smart doesn't mean intelligent.... for those that have businesses... they had to go to business school or do one for of business training or the other...

Being lazy and smart is like being an illiterate and trying to build a car so that you can easily move to your locations

Stay Healthy, Stay Wise

But going for business training or any form of training whatsoever does not make one hardworking.

So you're saying lazy people aren't intelligent?
Well that's your opinion.

Nice day

In this era of "Change" and Economic Recession, where Banks and corporate organizations are continuosly downsizing while MORE graduates are still graduating in hope that they secure a well-paid job.
If you are still searching to be employed, you are at big risk, its a 20% chance!
Also, if you are proud and satisfied by your current salary, you are a big joker (apologies for the statement) because the over 3000 Banks staff laid off did not get replacement.

But I will advise that you seek to be SELF EMPLOYED and PART-TIME employed by others so the coming recession predicted will not meet you in shock- Oh, I had known...

If you listen to the News, Fed Govt is in full support of AGRICULTURE afterall, we all started from their and na their we go end up when Petrol don diminish value finish. *Gbam!*
