I AM lazy! I DO procratinate!

Friday, August 07, 2009

Do you succumb to laziness?

We commonly procrastinate or put off an activity altogether by saying "It will get done eventually" or "Someone else will do it." Wrong! Being lazy and not taking responsibility are wastes of time. Often the power for change is within us, but without our efforts things would fail or go awry. You cannot rely on help from others, only what your own two hands accomplish on their own. Hard work is a habit that needs constant attention. But be mindful that you are giving your full effort to a project. Apply yourself, value your time, and don't squander it hoping for help.

This is from the Healthy Reflection email 8/7/09 since I am lazy and do procrastinate.

    Procrastinator -- definitely for me --maybe you -- but lazy -- feel that way but know I'm not really and the little bit I have seen here -- I feel strongly that does not describe you at all.

    You have a great blog here

    yup, I'm lazy and a procrastinator too. But that's ok, I get things done eventually.

    Oh wait, I'm looking into a mirror, LOL

    I agree with Debi and Tammy and their comments about you. Lazy and Linda do NOT go in the same sentence
    Lazy and Tony go hand in hand though.

    Have a great day my friend
    Maybe I'll get off my lazy but and get back to work, LMAO

    Linda and lazy do not go together.....sorry try another blog!! LOL YOU are
    a better example of success or accomplishment, but I would never pick you for lazy. I do understand though what message you were conveying...we ALL, success or not, have within us the ability to quit or put off till tomorrow. Thanks for the blog.

    I agree with Marty---You are far from lazy! Look at your accomplishments! Thanks for the post--I'm procrastinating right now! I should be outside doing yard work and I just can't seem to get myself psyched for it. I gotta get out there before the heat gets too bad. Well, this post boosted me out of my seat! Bless you for being a constant inspiration. If you choose to be a little lazy, you probably earned it! Have a wonderful weekend. On my way outside now! Tammy

    I think you are nuts. You are not lazy. A lazy person would not have lost 90 pounds and motivated so many of us to continue on this journey. You stand as a role model of what can be achieved.

    Great Words of Wisdom!!!
    I'm a bit of a procrastinator, but when I get going I'll finish whatever it is and I'll do it right. I value my time and I hate wasting it on re-doing something that didn't get done correctly the first time. Somethimes, that's just unavoidable though. Thanks for your blog! We all need a little reminder now and then. JUST DO IT!!!

    You're funny, Linda!
    I am not lazy and never have been one to procrastinate but I do always look for the quickest easiest way to get things done and just DO IT!
