Human beings -- we are creatures of balance, habit, hedonism. We enjoy leisure. Besides dolphins and maybe one or two species of primates, humans are the only species that has sex for pleasure. Freud always argued that every decision a person makes is fueled and inspired by his/her subconscious desire to have sex, to procreate.
I’d go even further and say:
we are hedonistic by nature and seek on a primal level not only to have sex to procreate but also enjoy ourselves;
we are a pleasure-seeking species by nature.
It is the act of self-indulgence and the desire for comfort and feeling of satisfaction that is the motivation behind every decision we make.
Why go for a new job that pays more?
So that we have more freedom without time and resources.
Why try to lose weight?
So that it takes less effort to get up when we have to and less effort to well, actually breathe.
Why go to school?
To get into a field that we find satisfaction and enjoyment in learning about.
Everything we choose to do is because of our hedonistic nature and our desire to make our lives easier.
Laziness is the heart of hedonism; by being lazy, we are embracing a cozy, pleasurable, hedonistic lifestyle, and thus, laziness is a natural part of our genetic makeup.
It goes against our very nature to do things that require exertion of effort and labor.
Hard work is something we do only out of necessity, for survival in a worst case scenario, in the same way a coyote will chew off its own foot to escape a trap. A coyote is not likely to chew off its own foot “just because” -- it’s something it does only when absolutely necessary. Likewise, we work hard only when we feel it is absolutely necessary.
Sure, we (as human beings) can and will work hard when push comes to shove, ya know, when it is absolutely necessary for survival, but it is not something we are inclined to do in our natural habitat, or in our daily routine. When we create a comfortable environment and inhabit one, we don’t go out of our way to seek struggle, conflict, or hard work.
The way to escape the corporate trap is through laziness.
Pay attention to what you find comfort in doing and find a way to monetize it. That’s the way of a true procrastinator. Build your own little island of peace and prosperity.
It’s a common consensus that as human beings, we are more intellectually and emotionally evolved than other animals and species across the planet.
Yet, it seems quite ironic that despite this notion of how evolved and advanced we are, the elites want to simplify our existence to the equivalent of a work horse or task monkey.
They tell you that we are unique and special under the same breath they tell you to “get back to work:”
If you are to evolve personally, and if we are to further evolve as a species, then we must accept the fact that “hard work” is primitive and a setback to our progression.
It is the rich few that realize the value of laziness and they are trying to keep the luxuries and comforts all to themselves. Enough is enough.
Stop going to work. Quit your job. Stop working for someone else.
The next time someone criticizes you for being lazy, just say it’s in your nature as part of an evolved species.
There are plenty of resources in the world and the workload can be redistributed to automation, making a life of luxury and leisure, a world of laziness completely possible.
We just have to take the next evolutionary step as a species and share rather than compete in order to attain it.
We don’t work hard (or want to) without an outside threatening force, a “trap” or enemy if you will.
The corporate structure is the “trap” and the elite are the enemy. You are chewing your own foot to escape, if you work hard. But there’s a better way to get out, an easier way (and not to mention one way more efficient)
From a survival perspective, out in the wilderness in the times of our ancestors, comfort meant safety.
To feel comfort, meant that you were protected and you had plenty of resources. It meant you weren’t living in a struggle and constant fear of getting attacked or running out of food any time soon. It meant you had shelter to keep you warm and safe from the elements and would remain well-fed for a long time.
Comfort is a desired feeling and it became pre-wired in our brains to seek it. Everything we do comes from our desire for comfort, and it is laziness that allows us to arrive there.
Comfort, in ancestral times, meant certainty for survival. Again, if you were feeling comfortable, you no doubt had an abundance of food and resources, as well as a strong shelter to protect you. Thus, your goal, pre-wired in your brain, is to embrace your laziness and create comfort, not to work hard and create an ongoing chain of tasks. You are not a machine, but a human being. You a not a workhorse, but a lazy procrastinator.
You don’t seek to live in struggle, suffering, and fear. No. Instead, you aim for prosperity, pleasure, and relaxation.
These are fruits of comfort, fruits of laziness. To grow a harvest of comfort, you must plant seeds of laziness.
But they’ve hypnotized you, the people in charge, the evil Lazy Master Minds. They’ve brainwashed you to believe otherwise.
They want you to think that the benefits of “plenty" (luxury and leisure) are something that must be earned, something unnatural, something acquired through artificial labor, manual grind.
They want you to accept without question that attaining a plethora of resources and living in luxury and leisure is some sort of “uphill battle” to obtain.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. The truth is they have collected these mass resources and pass it on from generation to generation. There is no amount of “hard work” that their greedy lazy spawn has ever done.
Sure, there is some amount of work to be done, but definitely NOT 40+ hours a week of it for 40+ years of your life. The amount of work to achieve comfort should be minimal. You’re here to live (as a procrastinator), not exist (as a laborer).
They further instill this belief upon you that “hard work is the way to success” (luxury & leisure) by saying that Laziness is an unnatural force that prevents you from embracing “natural” good work ethic. It’s a “sin”, evil, or otherwise terrible habit to have, they’ll tell you.
Don’t believe them; all they’re doing is trying to satisfy their own craving for comfort and avoid doing any amount of work themselves. They’re lazy rich bastards controlling the productivity of society to benefit their own luxury and leisure, rather than allow the productivity to benefit everyone.
They’ve put you in a situation where it is absolutely necessary to work hard, or at least have put you in a mental prison to think, believe, and act that way.
They want you to believe that they hold you by the paycheck. They want you to feel like you are chained to their command and obligated to perform whatever they say, just to survive.
If you don’t go to work, you don’t get paid. If you don’t get paid, you can’t afford to pay bills. If you can’t afford to pay bills, you can’t eat, bathe, or put a roof over your head.
Seems like a logical conclusion that going to work is necessary to survive.
Except here’s the thing: it’s 2019.
You don’t need a boss or place of employment to make money. You don’t need to be somebody’s else’s bitch to put food on the table. You don’t have to schlep to an office or work site for the majority of your life in order to retire and enjoy the fruits of comfort.
Don’t let the illusionary prison keep you enslaved any longer. Escape to your Lazy Island!
The Internet is a thing, and you can make money online. There’s plenty of opportunity from affiliate marketing to freelancing to software sales to blogging. There’s no reason to work a 9 to 5 job any more and there’s no reason to even get off your couch for that matter.
No one owns you any more and hard work is an ancient practice of the past; it’s no longer necessary in our modern world. The Internet is your ticket to freedom. You can make enough money to pay for your necessities without any corporate owner holding a pay check over your head. You can escape the plantation and live your own lazy life.
And you don’t even have to “work hard” to earn your keep. You can earn most of your money passively, and the “work” that requires some actual participation or activity can be intertwined with what you actually enjoy doing, like streaming the games you play or commenting about the films or TV series you watch, so it doesn’t actually feel like work anyway. You find a way to make money off your laziness, in other words, and do things on your own time when and if you feel like it. There’s no pressure.
You’ll feel more natural doing it this way, the lazy way, as opposed to grinding for hours on end and rushing to meet deadlines and protocols that you never even set yourself.
By working hard for someone else you are building someone else’s nest, someone else’s place of comfort.
Don’t do that.
Let them fend for themselves. You’ve got your own couch to lie in and aren’t gonna waste any time working to pluff someone else’s pillows.
