What is laziness?

Being lazy is one of the negative words in the English dictionary however, with this article, lazy is not will be consider as negative. There are some who will consider this as a positive one who can serve as their bread and butter. If you have something to do, and laziness block your way, there will be a reason with yourself to unblock it. It depends upon our attitude and discipline how to manage it.

According to Google search, laziness is the quality of being unwilling to work or use energy, sometimes it call as idleness. Google also emphasizes that the main causes of laziness are procrastination, distraction, poor lifestyle choices, exhaustion, indecisiveness, poor nutrition, lack of motivation and lack of self worth. In which most that I experienced from my previous jobs to become lazy were lack of motivation.

Agree or not, we became lazy because of the distraction also from different people around you.

Tips on how to hide to your boss your lazyness

Take note: I created this hub to inspire others not to demoralize them. I am not lazy worker too. I just wanna share about being lazy while in your actual work hours. Here are some points that you might find it interesting. You wanted to work but there are some times that you are that lazy. You have two things to do if you feel laziness in the morning.

  1. Take a leave of absence that means you are not going to report for work. You have to contact by phone to your boss that you are not feeling well. You need to take a rest.
  2. Report for work but do not do your tasks.

If you choose the second, you have to consider the following:

  1. At the start of the day. Around 8:00am to 8:05am, take a slow walk to your table. Leave your things there and go to the pantry.
  2. Around 8:06am to 8:20am, you are already in the pantry. Take a sip of coffee. Feel the aroma of your coffee for fifteen minutes.
  3. Around 8:21am up to 9:30am, go to your desk. Open your computer and open some emails, either personal or official. Just read it.
  4. At exactly 9:31am, go back to the pantry and try to look for some food to eat. You will stay in that place up to 9:45am.
  5. At 9:46am, you are now going back in front of your computer. Continue surfing the net. Explore your social media accounts. In order to get check by your boss, open one document from your harddrive and make a move that you are exploring your document when your boss approaches you. Be sure to minimize your online activities when the boss tries to talk with you. You will explore he net up to 12:00nn.
  6. You are now ready for lunch up to 1:00pm.
  7. At 1:01pm up to 1:15pm take a small walk to the comfort room for your teeth brushing activity.
  8. At 1:16pm up to 1:20pm, take a small walk again up to your desk. And then sit.
  9. Shut down your computer pretending that your machine accidentally shutting down. It will take you 5 minutes to open again your computer.
  10. Then open again another document for your pretending work task in your computer. Open another site to explore up to 3:00pm.

You still need two hours before finally saying the end of your work hours. Here are some ideas to continue.

  1. At 3:01pm, your tummy is now hungry again, go back to the pantry and look for some foods or take a sip of coffee. Do that up to 3:15pm.
  2. At 3:16pm 4:30pm explore your pretend document activities in your computer.
  3. At 4:31 up to 4:50pm, fixed some paperworks at the top of your table.
  4. At 4:51pm fixed your bag and in about 10 minutes, you are now ready to go home.

What are the suggested jobs for lazy people?

I found out that there are some suggested jobs for lazy people. That's crazy, there are? But do not get me wrong, if the job of the reader of this article is the same that I am going to mention, I didn't mean to harm you, it is just a coincidental. It is only based on what I've observed and came from some of my friends who already worked like that, the following are:

1. Apologizer. This is crazy, there is a job like this one. Actually, there is an agency in Japan that hires someone else just to say sorry to someone else. The qualification of this people are something how to handle their emotion in saying "sorry" to their client. Their client will be the receiver of the "sorry" emotion while their employer has no time to say "sorry" to the client because of busy schedule.

2. Breath Odor Evaluator. Yuck! You must be brave enough to check the breath of someone before and after they will take a chewing gum. There is a job like this because they are going to check how effective is the chewing gum.

3. Sports fan. Wow, being a sports fan is not really a job. However, there are some teams who supposed to hire lots of people just to cheer the players specifically basketball, football or any team sports to give more booster to win.

Actually, there are lots of jobs available for lazy people, these are only few. As I said, pardon for the inconvenience, if you are the one that I've mentioned.

Luis G Asuncion (author) from City of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, Philippines on November 24, 2019:

Truly that even the topic here is all about lazy, you are not that lazy to comment in my articles. Thanks Robert.

Robert Sacchi on November 24, 2019:

You're welcome.

Luis G Asuncion (author) from City of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, Philippines on November 24, 2019:

Thanks Robert and looking forward with a great success. Stay safe always.

Robert Sacchi on November 24, 2019:

Good point. Some people have a few articles that get a ton of hits. For the rest of us quantity makes quality.

Luis G Asuncion (author) from City of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, Philippines on November 22, 2019:

I am now easily knowing the struggles to have here in Hubpages. We should not be lazy in accessing it.

Robert Sacchi on November 22, 2019:

You're welcome.

Luis G Asuncion (author) from City of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, Philippines on November 22, 2019:

Ok. Thanks for the info, Robert.

Robert Sacchi on November 22, 2019:

He was well known in his day.

Luis G Asuncion (author) from City of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, Philippines on November 21, 2019:

O great. I will search about him. Thanks.

Robert Sacchi on November 21, 2019:

I believe it was Red Skelton. It was a long time ago.

Luis G Asuncion (author) from City of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, Philippines on November 21, 2019:

Thanks for commenting. Really? Is that a comedian in black coat?

Robert Sacchi on November 21, 2019:

This article is very amusing. A long time ago a comedian did a pantomime of a worker, that is pretty close to your described work day. There was a Saturday Night Live skit that was an advertisement for a company that took the blame for people. If you forgot someone's special day this company would deliver a gift, and claim they lost tract of it and that's why the present was late.

Luis G Asuncion (author) from City of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, Philippines on November 21, 2019:

Yes. Liz thanks for commenting. I usually use also the Grammarly in order to check some of my loopholes.

Liz Westwood from UK on November 21, 2019:

This is an interesting commentary on laziness. When I was new to Hub Pages, because American English does not come easy to me, a fellow hubber suggested that I download a free version of Grammarly. I have found it helpful when writing my hubs.

Crisilda Payda on November 20, 2019:

I feel crazy while reading it. Thanks for the laughter.

Luis G Asuncion (author) from City of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, Philippines on November 06, 2019:

I agree with CarL that being lazy should not be a habit. We should do our best because we are being paid to do our task.

CarL on November 02, 2019:

Funny yet so true to life experience.. I really did this but it's not a good habit at all..

Susan on November 01, 2019:

I do experience that before. Lol.

Mario on October 31, 2019:

Wow funny routine. Maybe you are doing this? Lol
