This post is more of a question really, because I don’t think I have a good answer for this. Not coincidentally, this is my whole point.
The one reason I can imagine to be lazy would be a primitive drive to conserve energy. But in this day and age THERE’S REALLY NO REASON TO BE LAZY. There’s plenty of food around for us to eat, so we don’t need to sit placidly waiting for a migrating herd to come through our lands.
So WHY DO WE PREFER NOT DOING THINGS OVER DOING THINGS? Thinking logically I believe most people would conclude that NOT being lazy is far superior to wasting time (aka being lazy). Therefore, I don’t think there is a good reason to be lazy. (It’s probably another one of the devil’s lies!)
I am not exempt from the inclination towards laziness by any means, but realizing that there’s no point to laziness helps me to be a little less so. If you think about it long enough, you’ll find that LAZINESS IS ABSURD. Perhaps that understanding will inspire you to get off your derriere and do a little extra good in the world 🙂
