The Truth About Laziness in School, and Why You Should Overcome It

Updated on July 21, 2018

How It Usually Begins

“Hmm, it’s still early and I still have loads of time; and since this is easy, I’ll just do it later!” That’s just one of the many excuses that we say when our overbearing laziness strikes, making us delay the work we are supposed to do – finishing it later than supposed. Yes, that’s how we rock at procrastinating, aren’t I right? All these excuses are just alibis, a false justification of our laziness because we choose to make this laziness in us unmanageable – but whether it’s pure laziness or just plain discouragement, being lazy is a choice that we make because the problem is, we stick to its grounds.

The Progression That Needs To Be Stopped

“I’ll do it later.” “Easy” “Maybe tomorrow.” One word. Complacency. Of all the reasons why the occurrence of laziness in us is seemingly continual, complacency has been summiting at the top. This is just like when we revel in finding out that one of our classmates is in the same situation as us. When both of you are still in the process of making it and worse, none has even started. We’re being laid-back. Similarly when we confidently assume that we will be able to finish it on time. Easy? Then do it. Already. “I’ll do it later.” Why not do it now? What is it that the later has and the now doesn’t?

Okay, let’s not stick to the matter of the “why not” but rather “why now?’ Why now? Because you have to. You need to. Your time is running now, and later, you will be running out of time. Effortless for us to say that. That wonderful delight of watching movies, scrolling through your social media feeds, and oh not to mention sleep! And then after all the fancying, we wake up and face our foe all piled up, and again, not to mention the stress. That’s actually what we get in return. Don’t you think that it’s better to relish in the thought of you being able to do everything that you want because you’re finally done with everything? “Maybe tomorrow.” How can you be so sure of saying this when you’re not even willing to really do it tomorrow? Is this your decision? You’re losing.

The Art Of Overcoming

“I can’t do it.” “It’s not something I’m good at.” This is the hardest to deal with. Self-distrust. You think that no matter what you do, it will only result in a failure. So you just choose to not do it at all because that’s how you expect it to happen. This is wrong. You’re saying you can’t do it but have you really tried? Did you even bother? You would say “I’ve done my best” and yet, you’re still not satisfied. That’s not yet your best. You can never really achieve the best that you’re aiming for if you don’t give your best-est in achieving it. Don’t make it as the reason for you to be lazy, for you to stay on the ground. Afraid to face fear? Then don’t. Run away from fear and run towards hope. Don’t do it to meet expectations, don’t even set one from yourself. Create your own discovery and surprise yourself. What you have is worth a lot. Your failures will lead you to success, but you must learn from it. You’ll be winning. Laziness only hinders you from discovering the things you don’t know you are capable of.
