Dan Harmon Explains How Laziness Can Actually Guide Your Success

Patrick Allan , Gizmodo Media

Dan Harmon, the creator and producer of the television show Community, openly admits that he's a lazy person. Of course, Harmon also believes that your laziness can be your guide to what you want to succeed in.

Harmon explains in an interview with Fast Company that he doesn't commit to a schedule, he doesn't have much of a work ethic, and he suggests you embrace your laziness:

Everybody gets out of bed, even on a Saturday. You eventually want to do something. So, the best thing you can do for yourself... is find the thing that you really like to do, and try and figure out how to make that your job... truly, that is the only way I manage to stay productive-is by finding ways to get paid to do the things I would rather do.

If you feel like you're in a rut, or you have no idea what you want to do, get lazy. What makes you actually want to do things? It may not be easy to do-at all-but there is a way for you to make a living doing what actually excites you enough to get out of bed. Success comes easier when you're actually driven to do something.
