It irks me when intelligent beings amount to nothing in life because they are too lazy to even wash their dishes, pick up their clothes or bother to neaten themselves.
Now there is a theory that the things we detest in others is a reflection of what we dont like within ourselves. In this particular scenario it cannot be further from the truth! I, by nature (ok, my mother had a terrible time of it making me tidy my bedroom, wash dishes and help around the house - even though we had a domestic worker when I was younger) am now a tidy, clean and neat person. My desk is always relatively paper-less, at home and in the office. My home is neat, dishes are done before I retire, washing is always done on time. I pick up after myself, make my bed every morning, wash the bath/shower etc.
I am not a lazy person either, even if I am tired, I will still make the effort to cook and wash the dishes. I clean my own swimming pool on a hot day, I choose to wash my car and bike myself, I wash my own carpets. When there is something that needs doing I do it myself. I seldom ask for assistance (advice, yes) and when I have exhausted my own physical capabilities then only do I seek help from others. I will willingly put in the extra hours at work in order to get the job done - no pussyfooting around. If I dont know how to do something I will ask someone to teach me rather than get them to do it for me.
Enough about me...... I digress. Suffice it to say that laziness and lack of self discipline is a precursor to stagnation in every sphere of your life. If you are happy in your smelly, dirty home and say you value your 'relaxation' time, if you get through each day by doing the minimum at work and never strive to learn more or take more responsibility, if you depend on everyone to help you do things you are able to do yourself and you have no guilt............Oooo please do me a favour - find yourself like minded people and stay away far far away from me. Oh, and realise that those who help you all the time, who listen to and believe the nonsense you spin about how you are incapable, are actually hindering you. Why dont you get yourself a backbone? No-one likes a user, a pathetic lacklustre slob.
I prefer to associate with those that are more than I am because I strive to be better, do better, grow more and expand my experiences, become more aware. I may be a little pedantic and fussy but hey the results speak for themselves.
