How to defeat laziness feeling at work


Are you aware that laziness is just a feeling? It is a feeling that normally attacks our body as it is influenced by our own thinking. So you normally think of being tired and unable to continue with what you were doing or you were about to do then the emotional part of your body responds to it as a result a laziness feeling jump in hence you completely become immovable and unable to work.

The fun of laziness feeling…

You can so deeply feel lazy but automatically when you meet an interesting work to do especially of leisure it automatically disappear and you forget that you were feeling lazy and find yourself doing it hardly. Or you can be feeling lazy but when a very urgent issue which is completely demanding you to work on it emerges, you automatically get empowered and jump in to working hardly. What happens here is that you have changed your thinking which become positive and tells you that you are responsible to work and you can do so, then your body responds to it hence you find yourself working.

The biggest course of your laziness feeling at work 

Though laziness feeling can be caused by a number of factors like being tired, prevailing not conducive whether e.g. too much hot, health problem like being sick which makes you weak at work, eating style and what you have eaten during working (eating too much can make you feel lazy) etc but the biggest factor most of the time is lack of enough competence.

Lack of enough competence on an activity you want to do destroys your interest of doing it. You might be competent on the whole activity but you are not comfortable with some parts which make its whole then you will start becoming disappointed by it because it will by the time being need you to start learning that skill before you continue. Because your ambition was to finish that task and now you are sure that you can’t finish it in time then you become bored and start feeling lazy.

Lack of enough competence at work in hand is caused by lack of enough information on what you are doing or due to ignorance and as long as whatever skillful activity you do is a result of what you know, then if you are lacking any important information concerning your activity you won’t  do it comfortably and lack of comfort at work is what triggers your thinking to create laziness feeling so that you can stop what you do and try to learn first before you continue.

Your competence Vs your confidence 

Most of time your laziness feeling goes together with lack of confidence, and by the time you feel lazy you also feel stressed because some works are waiting for you to do and you are not doing while time is rushing. But the reason behind losing your confidence is lacking competence on what you are doing or wants to do.

Start by learning about it first.

For you to defeat your laziness feeling at work make sure you learn and become competent and sure of what you want to do. This will increase the level of your confidence and readiness to engage in it, it will make you comfortable as you will be working, it will increase your interest to your work and you will love it. If you love what you do you can do it overtime.

Make a very good plan,

Some time you can be competent on what you do but because you didn’t plan how you are going to do it then you become disorganized and lose focus and direction hence you start feeling lazy. Having no plan is also incompetence. Therefore before you start working or doing something make sure you have good plan which will work as your guideline, your roadmap to empower you on your way.

Create a vision of what you do.

A vision is your destination, everything you do must have a vision though a task itself can be an implementation of a certain big vision but you need to know the destination of every activity you do. You must know what will be the end result of what you are doing. This will empower you to continue working even when you are tired, it will trigger you to learn about it if you are not competent so that you can effectively do it.

In short you must be enthusiastic of what you do for you to defeat your laziness feeling and you will become able only if you are competent and ready to do it. Your competence will build your confidence, it will trigger your love and passion to what you do, all these will empower you to work hard and sometime overtime as a result you will completely defeat laziness feeling at work.

Good luck as you are defeating your laziness feeling at work
