I once motivated myself but only once

Recommended Posts

You're just lazy. I am too.

That can be turned into your favor if you are smart about it. The most efficient thing is to avoid doing work until the very last moment when it absolutely needs to be done. If you manage to do everything just barely in the nick of time, you can get out of doing lots of unnecessary work. I like lazy initializers and the concept of JIT compilers for this reason :)

I too am lazy. But I work very hard to be lazy. I always ask myself, "Does this actually need to get done? How can I do this with the least amount of effort? How can I automate this so I never have to do the work again? How do I simplify this and make it so easy that I can get other people to do it instead? How do I work myself out of this job?"
