No. We want to do things. We want challenge, fun, and more.

Be distrustful of anyone (psychologists, philosophers, economics, etc) who say:

The human desire is to do as little as humanly possible, to conserve our energy.

No. We desire to maximally expend our energy! To become more powerful, to gain more, and to indulge more of our desires. To achieve more, create more, and consume more!

Why this bias that humans are ‘lazy’?

First and foremost, my theory:

To be ‘lazy’ is seen as a mortal sin.

And who are most of these philosophers and individuals who try to moralize? Americans or westerners, who believe in utilitarianism. And utilitarianism comes from the ‘Protestant work ethic’. This means:

The reason why laziness is seen as a sin is rooted in religion.


What is ‘laziness’ anyways?

Apparently ‘lazy’ means weak or feeble. This is very different from our modern interpretation which means:

One who refuses to do as I want them to do.

What do these moralists say? They say:

One must always be a busy-body and being ‘productive’ to maximize their income and moral worth.

Laziness vs weakness, or laziness vs fear.

In this life, you can do whatever you want and you don’t gotta do nothing you don’t wanna do. I do not see laziness as a mortal or ethical “sin”. The better question is this:

Is my ‘laziness’ actually fear in disguise?

Is the purpose of your life to maximize your productivity and earning potential?

Certainly not. After you die, you cannot take the commas and zeros with you!

Is the purpose of your life to maximize your productivity and earning potential?

Certainly not. After you die, you cannot take the commas and zeros with you!

What is the purpose of your life?

To do great things. To attempt great things. To make things and to share things, and to inspire and motivate others!
