The Tough Approach to Laziness

Well you may have noticed recently I haven't been so kind about my inability to have self-control and I have started calling it pure laziness. This is the kind of attitude you will start having with yourself if you frequently disappoint yourself with your efforts and successes. I have continued to look up information on the relationship between laziness, medication, and if there are any other ways of beating laziness. I happened upon a rather tough approach to conquering laziness. Although it is tough, I really buy what this person, Chuck Gallozi, has to say on the subject in his article entitled, "Cure For Laziness: If you don't make things happen, things will happen to you."

Here are some of the things he said that really stood out to me, I encourage you to read the entire article:
  • Who said that anxiety, discomfort, or fear has to prevent you from starting? I don't remember being told that I have to stop whatever I'm doing if it makes me feel uncomfortable.
  • Once you accept that sometimes the weather will be too hot or too cold, or that we will be hungry sometimes, you can begin to think with reason and not act based on your emotions.
When you decide to do something despite the discomfort, you will discover that it wasn't as bad as you thought it was going to be. You will feel relief. Nothing will be weighing on your mind. You will be rewarded by whatever the act was (for instance, losing weight). You will be starting a new habit of doing things you know you should do.

Some other great points of Gallozi:
  • do not use the idea of seeing a counselor or buying/reading a self-book or writing a plan as a way of putting off Action.
  • Do not assume motivation needs to come before action. Act first, and then the rewards will motivate you to do more.

This author recommends the following books, which I intend to check out at the library"
- "SELF-DEFEATING BEHAVIORS, Free Yourself from the Habits, Compulsions, Feelings, and Attitudes that Hold You Back" by Milton R. Cudney, Ph.D. and Robert E. Hardy, Ed.D., HarperSanFrancisco, 1991.

It is caused by the passion communicated in the post I
looked at. And after this post "The Tough Approach to Laziness".
I was moved enough to post a thought :-) I
actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it seem like a few of these remarks come across like left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you list every one of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
