The Lazy Guru’s Guide to Life
By Laurence Shorter
The word ‘lazy’ conjuring a bad image, at least for me, but this book did a fantastic job of explaining exactly the right way to be ‘lazy’.
It is an easy read, with illustrations on nearly every page so you are not drowned in text.
And that in itself is an example of incorporating proper ‘lazy’ techniques.
It means to not overwork, not overthink. It does not mean do a poor job with substandard results.
Often times, we think about all the things we ‘should’ be, (thinner, smarter, nicer, faster, etc) the things we ‘should’ be doing (start the laundry, read more books, exercise more, etc)
Not that self betterment is something to avoid, but these ‘shoulds’ do not get the attention they truly deserve. We put all these thoughts and feelings into little boxes instead of feeling them naturally. In a synthetic world, it’s difficult to resort back to a natural flow.
This book was pretty amazing overall. Highly recommend to everyone. Leading a busy life, down in a rut, whatever your current situation is, this book will relate to you.
