#30to30: Day 17 - On being lazy

I was planning on writing a long post about being single. I had this list of things I wanted to say and points I wanted to make and arguments I wanted to use.

And then I spent one hour on facebook being lazy because I didn't know where to start.

So I figured I'll write about being lazy instead. Because I am. It's like pushing a rock up a hill to get started on anything, and even when you get started it's so easy to get distracted because. Lazy. And then you put things off til tomorrow, and then tomorrow, and then... you know what? Tomorrow never comes. There's always a tomorrow that will take whatever you need to do.

Then I make lists to make me feel like I have a lot of things to do, so that I will start doing them, and then I get overwhelmed because there are too many things on the list and then I give up on them and just start doing whatever I feel like doing and then I get distracted by the internet and then there are too many "and then"s in this sentence (and in this whole post).

But the point of this post is, I guess, the fact that I'm trying not to be so lazy because there are so many things in the world to do and I mean to do them.

At least I've finally written this post. :)


  1. Go with the flow . . . when the passion to "do" comes, be smart, work hard and do as much as you can . . .and when the passion to "do nothing" comes, do nothing, in style. Be lazy. As surely as the sun rises the next morning after it has set in the evening, the doing will return. From the dad to the daughter, so I should know :)

  2. I hear you on all of this. Sometimes my biggest issue is just getting started on something. If I can do that, then I can get on a roll. But it doesn't happen as much as I'd like.
