The Other Kinds Of Laziness

By Ange Fonce

There is the obvious sort of "laziness"... the "laziness" of not trying very hard... of avoiding strenuous tasks or heavy lifting... of getting others to do your work or not showing up for many hours each day.

We are quick to point fingers at others and ourselves when we demonstrate this sort of sloth.

And there are other sorts of "laziness" and they are far more damaging.

There is the "laziness" of racism and sexism... which permits us to write people off or reward them without doing the "hard work" of actually "seeing them" for "who they are."

There is the "laziness" of bureaucracy... which gives us the "option" to avoid the people right in front of us... defaulting instead to rules and systems.

And the "laziness" of "rule of thumb"... which means we will not have to "think" very hard about the "problem" in front of us... and do not have to "accept responsibility" for the "choices" we make... after all it is "common sense?"

Do not forget the "laziness" of letting someone else tell us what to do... instead of us making our "own choice"... ceding the "choice making" to anyone bold enough to announce what we are supposed to do next.

Or consider the simple "laziness" of not being willing to sit with "uncertainty?"

Emotional labour is very different from "physical labour"... it is hard to measure for starters... and it is easier to avoid and the consequences are significant.

When we find ourselves looking for a shortcut... an excuse or an easy way out... we are actually indulging in "our laziness."

The "hard work" involves "embracing uncertainty"... being "responsible for ourselves" and "dancing with fear" and taking "responsibility" before it is forced or given to us.

And making sure we do the "hard work" of "making things happen" and "getting it done."

No matter how uncomfortable it makes us "feel"... because "emotional laziness" is the easiest of all to do.

As always... leave a man or woman all the "better" for "knowing" you.

Thank you and may you enjoy a Prosperous and Dynamic day!
