Let lazy people tell it, “I tried!” (Barely) Lazy people only try as much as they need to get away with putting things off for another day.

Lazy People Have A Comfort Mindset

The only real difference between someone who gets what they want and someone who doesn’t is in the effort.

And a lot of people don’t actually want to make the effort. They don’t want to try, and fail, and try again. Most people are easily defeated. 

Worse still, most people are comfortable being that way.

David Goggins has this anecdote about how people take their runs easier toward the end because they know it’s almost over. 

Lazy people are always thinking about the end. They want to get to the end of whatever the task is. I mean lazy people never wanted to do the task in the first place because challenges scare them. Working – using their brains, exerting energy – is their least favorite thing.

All lazy people want is know when the fun starts. Let them know when the hard part ends. They’ll show up then. They always do.

You Have To Think Differently If You’re Going To Live Differently

If you want to achieve anything, you can be preoccupied with the ending. It’s up to you to manage your focus throughout. For the long haul.

While it’s important to keep your end goal in mind, and to be able to see the bigger picture, getting what you truly want demands being able to see, understand, and execute every part of the endeavor – down to the details as well.

It’s not easy to cover every base, and stay dedicated to every objective, everyday, with consistency. It’s not easy to ignore distractions, or even to tell the difference between distraction or opportunity. 

Cultivating and maintaining discipline is challenging but not impossible. What it comes down to is knowing yourself and being honest with yourself. Everything you want depends on your willingness to hold yourself accountable, and to operate with integrity.

Lazy People Don’t Have Integrity or Passion

Lazy people have stories they tell themselves and others. They have excuses. They have a million and five reasons why they couldn’t do the thing they said they wanted to do. And they have five million more reasons why they couldn’t have that thing ready for you on that day they said they would.

Lazy people have zero integrity. Fuck em. 

It’s easier to keep it real with yourself – and the outside world – when you have passion for what you’re doing. Passion makes you refuse to give up. It pushes you to learn more, to think broader, to act decisively.

Passion is more than wanting something; it’s needing to experience it.

You can’t be passionate about your ideas and lazy at the same time. Sure, you can get exhausted. Everyone does. But passion is an endless battery. Real, true passion keeps you going. It motivates you to try harder, to dig deeper, to see differently.

The thing is you can’t fake passion. You can say your passionate. People say a lot of things. All day, everywhere online and off, people are saying things. Talking their shit with fuck all to show for it because they don’t follow through.

Lazy people do this all the time.

I Only Want To Work With Passionate People

My business tagline is “Websites for Passionate People.” Because I don’t want to waste my time fucking around with people who haven’t got a burning dedication to their goals.

Lazy people throw a wrench in everything because they’re operating out of fear and doubt. What that means for me is I have to spend more time hand-holding, or chasing down payments, when I should be spending time writing, building, creating – you know, my passions.

I don’t want flaky money, for flaky ideas, from flaky people who don’t make business plans or keep agreed deadlines. 

If your business, or your writing, or your creative project isn’t that serious, you shouldn’t be here. Because you’re going to hate my consistent communication style. You’re going to hate that I press you for answers, or push you to explain your ideas. And you’re really going to hate when I call you out for self-sabotage or manipulative behaviors.

It might just be a “simple website” to you. But if the website you need isn’t only one part of a much bigger picture then I’m not the person to make it. Because I love bigger pictures, and I love making things better, and I love what I do. I’m going to show up to build something beautiful and useful. And I show up every single day for it.

I’m not lazy. I’m consistent. I’m dedicated. I’m passionate. And I fucking hate lazy people.
