HOW TO STOP BEING LAZY
STEP 1: YOU’RE NOT LAZY
The word «lazy» is a condemnation. It’s shameful. It’s not you.
STEP 2: ILLNESS
If your energy level is low for months on end, get checked out by a doctor. It could be depression or illness. Make sure you’re ok before moving on to step 3.
STEP 3: PLAN
Write down what you want to get done — in order of importance — and put it on a daily schedule.
STEP 4: FIND YOUR GROOVE
Experiment with your life. Try working at different times of day and in different locations. Maybe you need background music to keep you focused or a snack or nap at a specific time.
STEP 5: SET THAT ALARM
Studies show people who get up early and show up on time are happier and more productive. And eat a good breakfast. Healthful eating increases energy. So does exercise.
