Isn't it about time you stopped being lazy and took back control over your life?

I used to be lazy. Extremely lazy.



But, just this last week, I ran 50 miles, did 3 weight training workouts, attended kickboxing classes and got a ton of work done, making a nice big fat paycheck.



You see, I learned how to overcome laziness--and you can too.



This book is a nice short read (ju

Not what I was expecting

I will admit up front that I am likely not the target audience for this book. The book takes a simplistic view of life where everyone is either lazy and pathetic or a “bulldog” and super driven.

Good, short read.

Love the book. Picked up the audio version to as well because I got a lot of extra content from listening to "The Complete Software Developer's Guide". I really like personal development so if you are looking for a quick read to help get you motivated to change your life, this is a good pick.

This book goes a lot further than prescribing a cure for laziness - it reads as a call to action to transform your life, and seems directed at someone a lot more dissatisfied with their current state of affairs than me. Nonetheless, it was mildly inspiring and I learnt some new things (eg pomodoro time tracking).

Stop being lazy, is perfect for the lazy in you!

Personally, I need motivation and reminders when it comes to procrastination.

Stop Being Lazy is perfect if you have fell off track, or if you need to get on track.
