LAZY PEOPLE HAVE NO TIME

If my buddy Kuljeet invites to meet the procrastination queen then I should invite to meet the procrastination king.

Are you ready to meet the king? 😛

Yeah! Sadly I procrastinate a lot and perspire at the end of the course of an assignment or deadline. Anyway, I don’t want to expose much about myself today so feel sad that you might not be knowing more about the Procrastination King. I want to go little more deeper into the subject of “Being Lazy”.

Throughout the week my busy writers (except Kuljeet) spoke about “being busy” and how it has become a habit of saying “I am busy.” But I want to draw your attention to that category of people who have no time at all. They say they are very busy but the story is kind of the opposite as the saying goes, “Lazy people have no time”.

I would like you to consider THREE major areas concerning lazy people or laziness which have been briefed in the book of Proverbs and I have the privilege of quoting them as under on after the other:

1. Mindset of a Lazy Person

 How long will you lie there, you sluggard?
When will you get up from your sleep?

A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest—

The sluggard says, “There’s a lion outside!
I’ll be killed in the public square!”

As a door turns on its hinges,
so a sluggard turns on his bed.

A sluggard buries his hand in the dish;
he will not even bring it back to his mouth!

Conclusion: So we can clearly see that the lazy people sleep a lot, avoid work, give numerous silly excuses, they are kind of passive, depressive and habituated with the slothful lifestyle they are leading. They don’t like to change.   

2. Consequence of laziness:

Poverty & Starvation

Lazy hands make for poverty,
but diligent hands bring wealth.

A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest—
and poverty will come on you like a thief
and scarcity like an armed man.

Those who work their land will have abundant food,
but those who chase fantasies will have their fill of poverty.

Sluggards do not plow in season;
so at harvest time they look but find nothing.

Laziness brings on deep sleep,
and the shiftless go hungry.

Under Subjection

Diligent hands will rule,
but laziness ends in forced labor.

Death & Destruction

The craving of a sluggard will be the death of him,
because his hands refuse to work.

Conclusion: Can you believe how devastating consequence a lazy faces? There will be starvation, scarcity, poverty, stagnancy, no development, no growth, humiliation, low self-esteem because of low status and at the end fatal end.

3. Words of Wisdom for a lazy:

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!

Conclusion: How important it is to literally follow the instructions of a wise person!!! An instruction to consider the ways of an ant. A lazy loses his/her status of being crown of the creation and needs to learn lessons from a mere ant. A lesson of work ethics, work culture, being hard working and leave procrastination and the habit of being lazy.

 Wonderful! Isn’t it?

Today, I came across a blog of a beautiful professional, Chelsea Suzanne who in her article: “REFUSE COMFORT AND STICK TO THE PLAN” prescribes some wisdom which need to be considered as well for our daily lives. I love one sentence of her article which I want to quote here to end my blabbering:

 I believe comfort hinders many from achieving great things in their professional careers.

Great things never come from comfort zones.
