Is laziness always a bad thing?

Most of us think it’s bad to be lazy

But it’s not the case for strategic laziness.

It can be a whole day doing nothing (Bruno Mars make a good point about this in The Lazy Song)

Because we seriously need time to relax and fuel ourselves up.

Or it can be the philosophy that DHH (racer, creator of Ruby on Rails, partner of Basecamp, the developer behind Twitter & Airbnb) follows:

Be lazy on things you have no choice but to get it done

Spend the minimum time & effort on the chores

And invest the other 95% in something you really care about

Something exciting or make you a better person
