Are you Diligent or Lazy?

I become sort of lazy these days. I play cards, hang out, go to the movies with someone else. All in all, I am capable of committing every kind of lazy "crimes", wasting so much precious time. Where is the hard-working me anyway? Someone told me that you could sort of enjoy the idle life. To be honest, I don't like it and I don't mean to be lazy!Let me adjust this sloth attitude and hit my head with a hammer now. Well, the thing is not about the race at all. There are no winners or losers. Laziness and diligence are both life styles. It is your own choice to define them! Are you Diligent or Lazy?

I am a bit of both. Last year I spent loads of time on the internet and didn't seem to get anything done. I decided to limit myself this year and to learn new things. I feel better for having a balance now between 'lazy' time and diligent time.

Yeah maybe its a lifestyle if it becomes a habit. But one thing I know which would surely make us lazy, depression. So watch out if you have this, because a lot of people don't know that they have this kind of problem.

Maybe life is just so damn comfortable. Talented People thrive in calamity and perish in soft living. However, I still hope that I enjoy good lucks every day.

Hi,my dear friend,I understand fully how you feel.We are in the same boat-I become lazy these days as well.I left school one year ago and have been working in a hospital's laboratory since then.I was very diligent at the beginning of my work.I ued to get up early every morning and arrive at work office ahead of time.I tried my best to do my work well.I insist on studing english and professional related knowledge in my spare time.I was very deligent then.But I don't know why I become lazy recently.I don't want to be a lazy person.I have a lot of dreams in my life.I believe that only hard work can make my dreams come true. Fighting!Fighting!Have a nice day!

A couple hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. "Never leave that till tomorrow," he said, "which you can do today." This is the man who discovered electricity. You'd think more of us would listen to what he had to say. I don't know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I'd say it has a lot to do with laziness. What's that saying? "Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer?" Because it feels damn good when I realize my dream.

Hey hiddenwing! I am the Queen of Laziness! I am not ashamed of being able to waste presious time, well maybe just a little I do get what I need done! I do my chores because I have to! My apartment needs to be cleaned so I do take care of what needs to be done, but I am not the most diligent person! I definitely lean towards the lazy! I am alot better at enjoying being idle then doing work! I know I should feel more ashamed, but I have already work for over 35 years! It's time for me to slow down down a bit! anything else

I'm usually diligent but also enjoy an occasional lazy day. I can afford the lazy days now that I am retired. Before retirement, I had to make good use of every waking moment. Such is the life of a working woman who cannot afford outside help.
