Strategies to Defeat Laziness

Written by on 20th July 2019

Benjamin Franklin once said: “Laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him.” Laziness causes your attention to dissolving with any other activity that passes in front of you. Eliminating or dissolving your mind from the main objective which you want to fight, moving away from your real objectives, your true success, and development. Overcoming laziness is much easier than it may seem. You just have to make the decision to do it and implement some simple strategies.

There are 4 types of Laziness

  • Physical laziness
  • Mental laziness
  • Existential laziness
  • Spiritual laziness

Whatever your type of laziness, will take you to poverty to complete chaos if you do not put a stop as soon as possible. There is a close relationship between misery and poverty with laziness. They are friends when they come together, they are inseparable. Following are some steps to get rid of your laziness. Maybe your laziness is due to:

  • Excess of physical activity.
  • Lack of sleep.
  • Bad eating habits.
  • Lead a life too sedentary.

Analyze your environment:

Are you around with more lazy people? This will accelerate your laziness further because laziness is usually contagious. So observe the people around you, make sure you are cooperating with people who are active and positive. Keeping yourself around active people can naturally eliminate your laziness and fill with motivations.

Initiate action:

To do something you have to start doing it. Only Thinking about doing it is not worth it. we must execute it, whatever happens, we must initiate the action. There is a funny riddle: “There are three birds in a tree and two of them decide to jump. How many birds are there now?…

There are still three birds. As long as the birds only think about jumping do not jump they will still be on the branch. The same goes for laziness. It is useless to think that you have to do something while you do not. The problem is the blockage that accompanies with laziness: where do I start? Do not complicate your life and start with the simplest, simplify your choice by doing the first thing that comes up. It is not the best way to organize, but it is the most effective way to start doing something.

Divide and Conquer:

Another of the big problems that block us and make us enter into laziness is that the tasks are so big that overwhelm us. To get out of there, it’s best to divide the tasks into other, smaller tasks to reduce the pressure and stay motivated. Divide the task first in 3, 4 or 5 parts (the ones you need, but not many). Dividing tasks into small sub-tasks will help you see the task easier and will motivate and relax you.
