Post Reply Laziness
Posted 4/10/13
I'm so lazy sometimes that I don't even want to walk to the kitchen to get a cup of water when I'm thirsty.

I think I might die one day

Laziness is one of the greatest virtues you can possess. Those of you equating it to procrastination or negligence are clearly misunderstanding what it means to be lazy. Being lazy is, first and foremost, a matter of efficiency. You must use the least the amount of energy possible to create the greatest "amount" of happiness. Simply ignoring the task or putting it off uses much more energy than the alternative, which is basically the opposite of lazy. While reading the posts on this topic, I've come to the conclusion that many of the people posting are working way too hard, and simultaneously, have not given any thought to how to be as lazy as possible. As a result they end up thinking that they are being lazy, when in fact, they've expended needless energy through their negligence to efficiency. A true proprietor of the lifestyle of the lazy thinks through possible future events, and decides which course of action will make him the happiest, with the least amount of effort. What greater goal exists? Often, that involves the opposite of procrastination, which for some reason, many of you have inexplicably taken as a synonym for laziness. You must aim to be lazy, and think about the best way to achieve that end.

I often see a "procrastination" thread on Crunchyroll, which asks how people fight off the urge to procrastinate. My answer to this, and the method I use, is quite simple. It is simply too much work for me to put off doing things. I judge that I will be most satisfied if I study, so given that I need to study, what is the easiest way to do so? My thought process follows like this: Clearly, if I put it off, I will eventually need to study, which would probably mean an all-nighter. While I'm generally pretty good with all-nighters -- that is, I do fairly well on tests after all-nighters -- I tend to forget a greater portion of what I've learned pretty soon thereafter. This means that, basically, I've put myself through hours of very unpleasant work with almost no reward. I've expended a ton of energy, and gotten almost nothing out of it. Had I only been lazier, I would have expended the same effort at a time when I am more likely to remember the material, and thus used my energy on something that would improve my well-being. I spend my energy on nothing, or I can spend it on something. Clearly then, spending it on something is the laziest and best way to act. Being lazier is almost always a good thing, and the current irrational praise of "hard work" is one of the biggest problems of society today. Why the hell is "putting in more effort" or "hard work" so noteworthy? Energy is something we all value, and presumably, we all want be good at what we do. If you complete your work, and do it well, why would you want to put a lot of effort into doing so?

I'm getting tired of working and dealing with hard-working incompetents, that keep their job solely because there's some sort inherent value in having someone that works hard. They suck at their job, but damn it, they put a lot of effort into sucking, so they keep their job. Meanwhile, someone that does all of their tasks ahead of time, and does so almost perfectly, so that they have the time to kick back for the rest of the shift, gets looked down upon for sitting around. Shouldn't being good at your job be more valuable than working hard at it?

Anyway, if you've read all of that, then I hope you've gained something from it. I'm basically just working off some steam on something that pisses me off at every job I've worked, so thanks for helping me out with that.

I think I'm primarily lazy when it comes to doing stuff around the house; I'd much rather not do dishes, mop floors, or yard work..etc etc. I'd much father watch anime and write. It's just more fun.

Even though I know that chores are necessary; they cut into time when I could be writing fan fiction.

tl;dr -- be lazier/ laziness is a good thing.

If you want to know why, then read it. If I thought I could give a short version, then the post would be shorter. If I wrote something, it's because I thought it was relevant. If long strings of text confuse you, then continue to tune out like the rest of the dipshits I have the unfortunate pleasure of sharing this world with. Even if you don't get anything out of my post, it's still quite beneficial to have the ability to read something that takes more than 30 seconds of your time.

Some people are lazy and some people just have a short attention span.

I am the laziest person in the universe.
I do nothing in my life and do not want to do anything in the future.
Just want to die.

Haha, no, but it's good to see I'm not the only one fighting the good fight. The only thing I'd disagree about is the cheating with studies -- the more you understand the world, the more you'll understand how it works, which means that you'll have a greater ability to determine the laziest possible course of action in the future. Plus, learning stuff is probably the most satisfying way there is to just sit around. It's probably the only way left to sit around all day without people thinking of you as a lesser being. Laziness is an attribute of the thinker.
