Laziness is not the absence of ability. It is the unwillingness to generate productive activity from the ability you possess. It is the lack of commitment to quality, and consistency.
Many people feel offended when they are called lazy; this is because they know they can do what they are reprimanded for, and sometimes they can do that thing very well.
Truth is, the only verification of ability is performance.
We will continue to be doubted until we deliver on the job. You must get on a personal crusade against idleness, shoddy work, tardiness, and slack dealing. Kill mediocrity. Learn to motivate yourself. Represent yourself properly by your high performance.
Be committed, and consistent.
It’s time to act.
You are more!
