Are you lazy?

Do you think you really put a lot of effort into life? I know that I don't really do any chores around the house most of the time, but when I want to do something, I do it well. If I needed to do more things, I would, but generally there is not much I can do these days.

I'm a very lazy person, and have never had any ambition. Usually I look at all the things I should be doing and then turn on the computer instead. Shocking, I know!

Well, I did "Select All" and pasted this page to NotePad, and did a Word Count. There's around 2000 words on the screen at one time! All of this reading is at least kind of productive!

That's always a good way to be since it is just so hard to pick up where you left off.

I am essentially a lazy person but I still try to help around the house because I do not want to be inconsiderate towards my spouse who also works.

I do put in alot of effort. I have lists of things to do everyday. I try to get as many of them done as possible. I have the habit of prioritizing. Its just a matter of going down the list.If I do not feel good, I may do less then usual. I dont have many days that I am not pretty busy!

Well, it probably does feel good in the end, but nothing's more important than giving yourself a break once in a while!

I believe that I put all the effort that I can into life and well I do what I can around the house too. I think it is balance, and you do what you can and since you do it you should not feel lazy

I could probably put more of an effort into my life... but i am not really sure... i have anxiety so i'm a spaz lol and it gets in my way sometimes i think... maybe i put all the effort that i can into it... i don't know.. maybe i could put more. but i let fear and my anxiety stop me... i do try and over come it and do it anyway... not always easy though... i am trying harder and i want to try even harder! i just need to step out there... am kind of depressed right now too so that isn't helping lol

I donot effort much whenever I donot need it so you can guess I am lazy to do things. When I plan that I have to complete some tasks on a day most of the times I was able to complete around only half the tasks and later I decide to do it tomorrow. This is very bad thing about me. Only during the exams and bad times, I am sincere to do my work.

I did before I got sick but now it is hard to find the energy to do all the things I used to do. I really get upset when I see dust and cobwebs because I used to get rid of them all even though I worked full time. Now I am so tired all the time that I cannot find the energy to do keep my house tidy and it upsets me terribly that I cannot.

i can say i have good and bad character. and most of people have same situation. i can be veru hardworking in doing something, and sometimes i can be very lazy. it doesnt go with mood, but depend on what i'm doing. if i'm doing things i'm not into it, i might get very lazy, if things that i like, i can be very hardworking....happy mylotting~

Occasionally I am a little lazy but ordinarily I'm not, I try to keep things nice and neat but if I'm extra tired or sleepy I might slack off a little but not for long, it really depends on my energy level and lately I haven't had a lot of time or energy to pay attention to the things I normally pay attention to. have a grate day.

Well...with three kids ages 8,3 & 2, I'm pretty much up and down and on the go from the instant I get out of bed until I can get back in it! I have always been of the same mind...do it well or don't do it at all. BUT, I must say that with the addition of the last two children, I find myself doing only a moderately good job on some chores simply bcz I loose track of what I'm doing!

Depends on the day. I have certain things that I try to get done, but I don't beat myself up over it if they don't all get finished. Chores around the house... is this because you don't have to? I'm not familiar with that any more, being the wife and the mom pretty much means that I do most of the house stuff. My son has a few chores and I expect EVERYBODY in the house to pick up/clean up after themselves which makes my job a lot easier. I'm a clutter phobe so I usually make sure the main areas of my house are all clean and presentable before I leave every day. This doesn't take very long because I never let anything pile up. It makes it a lot easier to keep the workload down so I don't have to spend hours cleaning - even when I have to do bathrooms or mop.

sometimes i feel lazy too. when i got up to bed, i usually lie again on a sofa or some place in the house that makes my body comfortable. but there are times that i do feel good, when i got up, i want to make my day productive.

Hi Sheepie. I'm like you. I don't do much anymore. I have a bad back so it's hard to do some things. But, I know I should get more exercise. I've been starting to get back using my exercise bike. It's hard to keep up exercising when you aren't motivated lol. As far as housework, like you said, I don't do it often, but I do it well.

I do wish I were in your shoes. I have tons to do all of the time, lol. I'm so tired at night sometimes I can't sleep for being so tired and hurting from doing so much. Other times after several nights sleep, I finally get to sleep all night or at least 4 to 6 hours. That's all night for me. I guess you'd say I'm not lazy. I'm a work-a-holic and always find things to be done. It's just hard for me to sit still much unless I have something to keep my hands and mind busy, like this or playing a game for a short time.

Sometimes I am. I go through lazy phases where I just move from the tv to the computer..to my bed.and the fridge. other days I'm just hyper and want to clean and totally redo my room and scrub the windows and stuff. It's weird. It depends on what you catch me on whether I'm lazy or not.

If I got any lazier, I'd never get myself out of bed I used to be a little more energetic, at work anyhow, but no more. Now that I am retired I just sit around all the time doing very little other than play on the computer
