Laziness has continuously been discouraged especially among students who are constantly warned that being lazy will make them failures in life.
This notion, however, is not true as lazy people become more successful than their active counterparts.
Journal of Health Psychology says that people who are physically inactive are more likely to make it as compared to active individuals.
The Telegraph reports that one of the wealthiest men in the world, Bill Gates once said that he would always “hire a lazy person to do a difficult job” at Microsoft “Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.”
Here are some reasons why lazy people are more likely to succeed in life.
They preserve their energy for the most important things. Lazy people really don’t have time for a lot of things. They almost always choose the most important tasks and complete them first. This makes them more productive.
They do not experience burnouts. Lazy individuals are constantly refreshed, and energetic because they do not involve themselves in too much activity. This means they have higher levels of productivity than those who are constantly on the move.
Use technology efficiently. A lazy individual will rely on technology for even mundane things. With tech being the future, lazy people are more likely to make money from it as they are accustomed to its intrigues.
They have mastered the art of identifying short cuts. The whole essence of being lazy is finding a way to carry out a task in the shortest time possible. They skip unnecessary tasks that will waste their time.
Lazy people are great at networking. Spending less time working means you have more time to socialize and acquire great contacts. Networking is one of the most important factors in business/career development.
