Iím going to have to stop telling the people I work with how lazy I am, because I think theyíre starting to believe me. At least, nobody corrected me this time. Thatís a first. Usually when I downplay my contribution to the company, I get told how impossible it would be to run things without me. I like hearing that, which is why I keep pretending to believe Iím less competent and/or less motivated than I think I really am.
Whether Iím actually lazy or not is a different question. Letís say there are things Iíd rather do than work, and itís a pretty long list. Iíve been reading the same book for a month, for example, because there isnít enough time, even with the days getting longer.
One thing Iíve been doing lately is letting other people take over some of the tasks that have been mine alone until now. Julie has been a big help in reducing my work load. Itís not quite to the point where I have big gaps in my daily routine. Maybe thatís the ultimate goal (and it would be if I were a true slacker), but Iím not there yet.
