Enjoy being lazy.·
Sometimes life gets in the way of good habits.
Two years ago, I developed a habit of working out in the morning. Three times a week, I got up from bed, drank a cup of coffee and went outside for a 30 minute work-out in the park. The same year, I developed another habit of playing basketball in my lunch breaks. At 12 o'clock sharp, I closed my laptop, put on my sports wear and went outside to play 30 minutes of basketball.
This year, I developed yet another habit. Every other Friday, I publish a new blog post. When I started this blog I set one thing straight from the get-go: I need a regular publishing interval. I know myself too well that otherwise I would kick my newly acquired habit.
With this blog post, I'm late. I'm late because I've been lazy. Ouch.
Laziness can be one of the greatest things in life. Lying around on the sofa. Watching stupid sitcoms. Playing video games. Doing nothing. That's the stuff.
It's not so great however, if there are things you should do instead. I should work out. I should write that darn blog post. There are so many things I should do!
But what's the use? We are all lazy from time to time. It's part of life and there are two ways to deal with it: Feel bad about it or feel great about it. Next time you're lazy, make the right decision.
