    23 Things Everyone Who's Both Lazy And Ambitious Does

    You're gonna be a big star – just as soon as you get up and shower.

    1. For your whole life, you've considered yourself a very ambitious person.


    You've always suspected you'd take the world by storm.

    2. The thing is, you are also too lazy to complete even small, simple tasks.

    Maybe because your time is too valuable for small, simple tasks.

    3. And as much as you cherish your hopes and dreams...sometimes it's just too much effort to get out of bed.

    4. As a kid, you'd fantasize about the incredible, exciting, adventurous life you'd lead.

    5. But as you've gotten older, your ambitions may have changed a bit.

    ME, AGE 24: I want to roam the world, an untethered vagabond! ME, AGE 34: I hope I can die in this new house because moving is terrible

    The goals you had when you were 8 sound like a lot of energy nowadays.

    6. You probably get a little ambitious when you're cooking.

    You're a master chef. You're gonna invent a whole new recipe. It's gonna be amazing.

    7. But as soon as you imagine all the ingredients you would have to buy, and how much chopping there would be, and how long it would take, you usually give up. / BuzzFeed

    It's all the same once it's in your stomach!

    8. And maybe you've even made grand plans for yourself in the shape of a new exercise regimen...

    i did like 5 squats today so if you catch me looking a lil thick tomorrow don't be alarmed

    9. ...but those plans tend to go out the window preeeeetty quickly.

    10. You have probably perfected the art of getting things done while barely moving.

    11. Sometimes you can have a pretty productive day without getting dressed at all.

    Doing things is somehow more bearable if you're in your PJs.

    12. You spend quite a bit of time envisioning the great things you want for yourself.


    Nobody wants things the way you want things. You want them the most!

    13. But you're also pretty good at just lying there thinking about literally nothing.


    For hours.

    14. When you see other people being successful, you always think you could do that too. If you wanted to.


    Which you don't. Otherwise you would.

    15. You know that your life goals would probably pan out if you were cleaner and more organised.

    But you can think of nothing worse than spending the effort it would take to get clean and organised.

    16. Your laziness has made you pretty inventive, though.

    You think outside the box, because it's lazier outside the box.

    17. And it's done nothing to harm your ego.


    Because the most important thing is having a healthy attitude, right?

    18. You just find the whole process of getting started so very difficult.

    19. So sometimes you don't get started at all.

    20. But if you ever DO get started, you know you'll be great.

    You'll be the very best.

    21. The important thing is to keep your imagination alive and well.

    Don't self help types always go on about thinking things into existence? That's a thing, right? Cause that sounds great.

    22. All you have to do is ignore the creeping suspicion that your laziness will prevent you from ever being successful.

    Of course you'll be fine. You'll be juuuust fine.

    23. Just remember: You're going to do great things!


    Just as soon as you get out of bed.
