Browsing social networks, I often come across posts like this:
“Day off work, putting in a good show and being lazy, all day!”
“Lazy day, with wine!”
“It’s raining outside, so I’m not going to do shit, but sit my lazy ass on this computer and share my recent gaming achievements” — okay, I exaggerated that one.
I don’t know why these people, work their asses off, go to school, pay rent, raise kids, strive for all these things, to sit around and do NOTHING — when they finally have free time, they want to be lazy?
Why would you ever want to do that?
Hey, I love taking 2 hours off and drinking a beer in front of a good movie. But, even when I’m drinking that beer, watching that movie, I’m still thinking about all the things that I need to get done. All the writing I could be doing. And how the movie I’m watching could influence that.
Take that free time and progress in life where you haven’t…
Hey, we all work hard. Every now and then we need to sit back and relax. But it appears too many people are doing it way too often.
I sound so preachy, I know. But when it comes down to it, everyone wants something out of life. Let’s face it, they want A LOT out of life. We expect so much. But often we get very little. You want something, you have to work for it.
So you hate your day job, but always wanted to (insert your dreams here) and possibly make a living out of it. Well then why in the hell are you taking a day off to sit on your ass and watch Vampire Diaries? What you do on those days off can change your life.
Take advantage of your day off. Get some things done. You’ll feel better. You’ll make progress and thus you’ll take one step closer to your dreams — being happy.
I suppose if being lazy makes you happy, then do it. But don’t brag about it.
Always be writing. Everyday.
