    Start with getting a life.

    I dont kill my laziness. When I feel like being lazy I take the oportunity. One of the main problems with the world is everyone running around doing pointless errands when they could just sit in a chair and read a book or watch some meaningless tv show.

    kilted, you're a true disciple of Onslow

    I either force myself to get things done, like Themis, or I wait till I get bored, like Classic Charm.
    could you define laziness, blue? give us some examples of when/how you were lazy?

    Remind yourself of the people out there who do not have the privilege of indulging any feelings of laziness.
    I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.

    I would say the same thing

    I don't kill it. For me laziness = tranquility and i appreciate it

    But is it really a bad habit? Personally, I am exceedingly lazy when I can get away with it. As a matter of fact I can put a lot of effort into creating a situation that "allows me to be lazy": I may need to expand on that: My profession is quality engineering, and my aim is always to get things, whatever they may be, running as smoothly as possible. In order to achieve that I need to keep fiddling with all sort of things to get them "just so". If I'm really successful, there should in theory be very little left for me to do, but in reality you just raise the bar once you have cleared it (Needless to say, I am both busy and overworked - feel free to draw your own conclusions. They will probably be correct ).

    As others have said, ve need to know bluelala's definition of the term lazy before any really sound advice can be offered. I have noticed that lots of people really mean procrastination when they talk about laziness. Is that it?

    Well said, both CC and Kilted.

    I give in then feel guilty usally if Im actually getting anywhere I tend to focuous on the lovley pile of books that are usually stacked around my bed and the fact that as soon as I get what I have to get done I can crawl back into bed and read them all.

    When the work is there and I can't afford to procrastinate, I have to force myself to kill laziness and slog. Other times I enjoy to think lazily.

    I once made this quote to put in my avatar:

    A laidbackperson quiety observing the world going by in a mad hurry, can observe things what others missed to see.

    But then I thought otherwise.
