When you stop to think about it, doesn't it seem logical that we would naturally know how much effort it should take to perform any given task in an optimal way?

Not too much exertion, not too little - just the right amount.
And again, logically, doesn't it seem that we would choose to do things in the most efficient manner?

What do you think gets in the way?

That concept of 'lazy' is a way too convenient catch- all …
And really, what does 'lazy' actually mean?

DANCE WITH IT!   EXPERIENTIAL APPS                      
An opportunity to experiment with some fun ideas…


So, here's a clue to how we end up in this counter-intuitive, not taking care of the task at hand, situation:

Remember all those scoldings in your growing up years?
          'Clean your room!'
          'Put that away!'
          'Hurry up!'
          'Shut the refrigerator!'
          'Turn off the light!'
          'Do your homework now!'

Pretty annoying at the time, right?  How did you deal with this type of parental 'noise'?
          Did you behave?
          Push back in some way?

The interesting thing is that we seem to continue this push/pull between that internalized parental bullying and the part of us that really doesn't want to hear it…

We had then, and have now, several different default modes of response.  

There's the 'Rebel' response:
          "No I won't!"
The Victim response:
          "I can't!"
And the internalized Bully response:
          "It will never be good enough!"

All of these get in the way of finding balance…
