what can i use to push myself wen im being lazy?September 8, 2011 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm #808038YW Moderator-42ModeratorSeptember 8, 2011 11:04 pm at 11:04 pm #808039Busy As A BeeParticipant
I’ve found that creating incentives for myself to get up and get things done works well for me. Whenever I have college work or the such, I “bribe” myself that if I write 5 pages of my term paper then I can play this game or eat that chocolate or read a chapter in my book.
You can never be too old to bribe yourself 🙂September 9, 2011 12:27 am at 12:27 am #808040TheGoqParticipant
i wanted to see what this thread was about but it just takes to much effort to read.September 9, 2011 12:40 am at 12:40 am #808041am yisrael chaiParticipant
Hey, Goq, at least you put in the effort to write 😉September 9, 2011 9:15 am at 9:15 am #808042HaLeiViParticipant
Propel yourself with words and promises. Say, out loud, I will get up in a minute and do such and such. Then you are compelled to follow suit. This won’t work if you don’t consider your words binding. In that case, work on that , first.September 9, 2011 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #808043Raphael KaufmanMember
Hard work and perseverance pay off in the long run, but laziness pays off right now.September 9, 2011 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #808044HaLeiViParticipant
As important as it is to think there are times when you have to be able to not think. When it is time to do something don’t think, just get up and do it.
When you think about the job ahead it gets overwhelming. The fact is that you don’t do the whole thing at once, you do it as you move along. When you are thinking about what you have to do, you are thinking of the whole thing at once, which is impossible and overwhelming.September 9, 2011 6:43 pm at 6:43 pm #808045am yisrael chaiParticipant
There’s great advice given here.
Also remember that ???? ??? ??????? ????? (Pirkei Avos 2:2) speaks of laziness ???????? ?????, too, with a lot of work to do.

Sometimes laziness can drive the correct behavior.
For example, in this week’s Parsha:
Remember what G-d did to Miriam… and avoid Loshon Hara (speaking evil about your fellow) and avoid the complexities of dealing with Tzaraas.September 11, 2011 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #808049Be HappyParticipant
THis thread hurts. I get really upset to hear someone say:”I’m lazy, or tired or can’t be bothered”. After fighting for my life for two years having gone through 4 major operations and harsh treatment i say to you Appreciate and be grateful. B”H you can – get up in the morning go to work,do what ever needs doing. Appreciate and get up and do.
