5 Effective Ways To Get A Lazy Person To Work by olokeded: 9:47pm On Apr 28, 2017
There are ways to get lazy people to work and it just might be a bit easier than you’ve imagined.
Consider the ‘Lazy’ Person

Certain people you consider lazy might not see themselves as lazy. In their own eyes, they’re putting in as much effort as they can. People have different perspectives on what can be defined as laziness and they tend to do what’s in alignment to their goals and view of the world. Ultimately to change people, you have to try to understand them better and first understand their perspectives. You can do this by asking the person non-judgmental questions or talking to others who know the person to get a better picture of his/her personality.

Consider Your Perspective

You have to understand and learn to accept that the fact that another person doesn’t have the same approach to work as yours doesn’t make them lazy. You should try to understand that while your perspective on laziness makes much sense to you, it might not make sense to the other person (as much as this other person’s perspective on laziness doesn’t make sense to you too).

Let Go of Your Preconceived Notions

This basically involves being more understanding and being more flexible with your beliefs and notions on work and laziness. Ultimately, everyone is willing to work hard for things that truly matter to them, so lose your judgments and preconceived notions, and focus on influencing the other person to work based on his/her perspectives.

Tap Into Their Deepest Motivations

To effectively influence people, you have to learn to tap into their deepest motivations. When you give a person a good enough reason or a big enough motivation (based on their deepest motivations) to work and accomplish tasks, you would be surprised at how much they would work to accomplish just about anything you give to them.

Focus on Results Not Activity

Avoid obsessing on how active a person. Focus instead on if the person is achieving the desired results. As long as the person is achieving results, don’t fret so much about how many hours the person works or how diligent they appear to be. The better measure for work is results, rather than time spent.

I honestly consider myself lazy when it comes to working. The truth is that all I need is something to literally kick me in the butt so that I can kick start, but whenever I start you will actually be the person to beg me to stop. grin grin grin

A little motivation is all that's needed.

Thanks for sharing this.

Remember that saying:

"Always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job, because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it."

After all, results are what we really need

Most people that are considered lazy are usually "smart workers"
It's not by forming activity that makes one productive Or hardworking

If you like stay at my company from 6am - 10pm, e no consign me

I go for results achieved not activity
