Are you Brain Active, but Body Lazy?

I was told that I had a very active imagination but when it came down to hard work, I was as lazy as can be. I think not. I was never lazy. I just thought tedium was boring. Reading took me to higher places. That is the difference between being lazy for lack of want or need to do meaningless tasks and brain active to doing meaningful things in the future when better educated and better prepared. For one, a person can toil their entire life, in the honest tedium of labor but in case you haven't thought about it, ideas that come from thinkers make it better for others to do things. The inventions of the times that made Rome great at building roads and huge monuments started with the written idea by a thinker, then CAN DO came after that.

Yes here is what I think about that subject. Most of the greatest inventions are from those thinkers that have immensely changed history and gave help to mankind. Most of mankind just go along and do not do either, think or do. As regards myself I am a thinker, dreamer, and a doer. It comes in handy.

You are a true renaissance person. The days of these types of people are numbered. In fact specialization is paving the way to creating more simple thinking people in the work place and that truly scares me and should scare most anyone.

Yep. I do become more energetic when I see in my mind, what the final results will be when I finish a project.

My brain just won't quiet down. I sometimes wish that it would. I have way tooooo many interests to do any of them justice!

I find that taking an hour to reading one book a day then putting it down until the next day assures me that I will finish getting it completely read. If I felt the necessity to read it all completely in one single setting I would feel too overwhelmed to even read it. Some books are not that hard to read but this one has been taking months to finish. Very tedious. It's a text book on mood analysis.

My mind is ever active but it does take some time to get me up and moving. However once I set my mind to it I do get whatever job needs to be done, done.

I find from your comment, you will be able to then put your mind more at ease after you get what needs to be done, done.

I have a great response to this in my mind, but my fingers are too lazy to type it out. I agree with you: reading and studying things isn't "laziness," even though some may think it is.

This is not laziness but you do not show interest in that.

I have to get things done, because if I don't, nobody else will!
