is a lazy person necessarily a lazy person ?

There’s an old adage that I just made up that says, “if you have no where to go then there is no reason to move.” This ties in to the concept of hope vs hopelessness.

Hope is easily understood from the point of view of a person born in cave but yet realizing/believing that there is a way out. Hopelessness is to be unaware of even the concept of an exit from the cave.

For the person with hope, there is an instinctive ambition to move in order to improve his situation, from dark to light.

But for the hopeless person, what could his instinct say … ‘move from dark to dark’?

The point is that since a hopeless person has no where to go, he therefore does not move, and to a naive observer he appears lazy.

  1. I’m a big fan of “work smarter, not harder”,so perhaps it could be argued that *some* “lazy” bacteris/people are actually more efficient than their nose-to-the-grindstone counterparts?

  2. Soeren, thanks for responding;

    me and my wife had a good time with this metaphor: maybe the bacteria doesn’t need light, maybe the bacteria chooses not to move to conserve energy, what about a bacteria that is aware of the light but still chooses not to move, maybe the bacteria tries to dig a shortcut to the outside world, etc;

    thanks,

  3. no a lazy person necessarily not a lazy . time and situation makes him lazy. there he needs a small back called encouragement or bring back his confidence etc. makes him to involve him in work again.

  4. The hopeless either become lazy or they commit crimes because they don’t see any other way. Children need to be taught in grade school and high school that the way out is through higher education. That should be the goal of all children.
