Unmotivated vs. Lazy
Posted 5/10/16 , edited 5/10/16
Is there a difference between being unmotivated and being lazy or are they pretty much just the same thing?

What do you guys think?

I'm interested too see what your thoughts are.

Also, would you consider yourself unmotivated or lazy? Or are you neither one of those?

My laziness motivated me to stay home.

They can often go hand in hand, unmotivated leads to laziness and vice versa.

They kinda work like PB&J.

They aren't exactly the same.
Laziness is being unwilling to work or use energy.
Being unmotivated means you don't have enthusiasm for what you're doing.
You could be still be willing to do something with motivation.

I guess nothing motivates me to stop being lazy

the smokers with the greatest desire to quit are often the ones who find it the most difficult

there's plenty of strange reasons for someone not doing something
laziness itself is not a medical condition though, its just what you use when you don't know or even care why the other person isn't doing something and you use a makeshift name for it

Lazy, is more of a choice, where being unmotivated can be due to several circumstances, such as: lack of interest, lack of sleep, your health might be a factor, depression etc.

I don't think anyone can really say neither. I think from time-to-time we all get lazy and unmotivated. Common trait of a human being.

Eh, I don't really have any grand ambitions, and money is not a big motivating factor for me. I don't consider myself lazy though. If shit needs to get done I'll put in the work to get it done. I'm just not interested in working for anybody but myself (selfish maybe, but its the truth).

The only thing I'm truly motivated to do nowadays is to finish my book.

I would say they are pretty different. You can be unmotivated and still get a decent amount of work done.

I'm motivated to stay lazy. Seen that new anime Tanaka-kun is Always Listless yeah hes pretty much me. But also while at times they may seem the same i think they are different. I think to be unmotivated is like to not want to try hard or get serious with something. You may still go out and do stuff or whatever but you won't be motivated to go very far with it. But honestly there's a very thin line between unmotivated and being lazy because they are nearly the same but not quite the same.

IMO laziness is exactly as it sounds, whereas being unmotivated can have a direct cause

Laziness - You want someone else to do the work for you.

Unmotivated - You feel like what you're doing/going to do has little meaning. You have no ambitions.

They're not mutually exclusive, but if someone depressed for example, it's more likely that they're unmotivated rather than just lazy.
