Combating the Lazy

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

There are two things that never fail to surprise me–and yet they shouldn’t.

One is that is never takes as long as I think it will to get my (itty bitty) house looking decent. About 25 minutes of sweeping, dishwashing, and counter-wiping later, it’s good enough for a dinner guest to see tomorrow night! (And in case we have a showing, of course.)

Second is that being productive and active in one area spurs me on to be productive in other areas–especially in my Bible reading and quiet time with God.

I always think I just want to sit at my desk, floating around the Internet, wasting precious hours of my life. Ten minutes of activity and I feel exhilarated, happier, and more motivated in other things.

Perhaps the next time I’m on Twitter complaining of this or that, someone could remind me about this post!

  1. You know my husband and I JUST had a discussion about this! I told him that I think I'm a genuinely lazy person who obviously feels happier when I'm not. It's a constant struggle for me! It's my prayer to be better at this not only for me, but for my little one too!
