hello DJs,

i am a lazy person. I know I might sound like making excuses, but i really try not to be lazy. everytime i get lazy, i jerk off. well anyway, what are the best way to control myself on not be lazy?
Now i know this sounds kind of dumb, but i really need some pointers from some experts. i am 18 years old, still a virgin, and not doing so good in school not because im dumb, but im just lazy. they say lazy dont have cures, but i believe you guys have effective ways to help me out since your advices sounded pretty wise in this forum. worst of all, i havent even got any job experiences yet, not even part time.
i got so many things for me to do. i mean, i really want to get some good grades by working hard, get a part-time job, get my first hottie successfully, and find more positive friends.
i want to do all these things as soon as possible. is it possible? but just by looking at all these task makes me procrastinating and sleepy a lot of the times. am i too ate? how can i overcome my lazyness?
i really really really need your advices guys. thanks.

i got so many things for me to do.
so do them. Motivation needs to come from within. Your within sucks. Read ~90% of the bible and it is all within that needs to change. You can sit and watch yourself fail or you can go and do something. Quit acting like it is so hard and go out and just do what you think you need to.

And your life isn't that tough. Boo hoo. Go have a self-pity party. My life is so hard I am not good at anything and so on. Yeah you never will be good at anything until you go out and try it. Yeah so you'll fail on the way, that builds character, but you eventual will know what fits you and what doesn't. Or you can sit around and think all day and not do anything about it and just assume you suck at everything. Go ahead and find a succesful person with this attitude and please tell me about them.

Abraham lincoln ran for office something like 13 times and failed everytime. Next thing you know he is one of the greatest presidents ever. Thomas Edison spent years trying to make a working lightbulb and it took thousands of prototypes before one worked. He never gave up though and look what it did. At the same time Tesla was pushing AC powered electricity and was laughed at. He came to the US with pocket change and completely revolutionized the way modern electronics are used. These people never gave up. They knew they were excellent and pursued it. Sure they had doubts but they pushed on. You can either walk in the footsteps of giants, like these people, or tip-toe through a meaningless life. It is your call.

The solution to laziness is it's opposite... greediness mixed with restlessness...

So I suggest you increase your metabolism with some exercise while focusing on world domination...

Anytime I hear "I might sound like I'm making excuses, but", I expect to hear an excuse. :rolleyes:

Well that's really productive. I thought you just said you didn't try to be lazy? Or does your penis pop into your hands and porn just leap onto the computer monitor by themselves?
well anyway, what are the best way to control myself on not be lazy?
Sounds like you don't have any self-control. If you did, you wouldn't have to whack off every time you get bored. You could actually do something useful instead...
i am 18 years old, still a virgin, and not doing so good in school not because im dumb, but im just lazy. they say lazy dont have cures,
No, there is no pill you can take to stop being lazy. Obviously you're complacent in your laziness or you'd have taken steps to correct it by now. If you really believe that there is no "cure" for laziness, that once a person is lazy they are lazy forever, then you're not only lazy, but you're stupid as well.
but i believe you guys have effective ways to help me out since your advices sounded pretty wise in this forum.
Ok. Get off your ass, go outside, and run a few miles. Then go to the gym. Talk to any girl you come across. Come back home and study for your upcoming tests. Or you could just sit alone in your room, wallowing in your own laziness while masturbating. Your choice.
worst of all, i havent even got any job experiences yet, not even part time.
And you're 18?
i got so many things for me to do. i mean, i really want to get some good grades by working hard, get a part-time job, get my first hottie successfully, and find more positive friends.
i want to do all these things as soon as possible.
No you don't, or you'd have stop being lazy already. Obviously you're fine with the fact that you don't put effort into anything you do (with the exception of finding new porn sites) or you'd have gone to the mall, applied at stores until you found a job, studied for your tests, talked to girls, and dropped your current "friends". The fact that you haven't, and instead would prefer to just come on here and complain speaks volumes about you...
is it possible?
Of course it's not possible... I mean, that would require you actually doing something other than jerking off constantly... you tell us? Is that possible? :rolleyes:
but just by looking at all these task makes me procrastinating and sleepy a lot of the times.
Guess what - they aren't going to go away on their own. Instead of focusing on everything at once, take them one at a time.
am i too late?
Yes, your life is over. You can't make any changes at all. :rolleyes:
how can i overcome my lazyness?
By getting off your butt. I really don't expect you to, though. After all - you like being lazy, otherwise you wouldn't do it.

here's what I suggest: every time you feel you're being lazy, cut off one of your fingers. It might not cure your laziness but at least you won't jerk off.

I'm not so sure that many of the above-listed patterns will work. "Just Do It" is a recipe for disaster.

So, as one who's been there/done that, let me tell you three things that I did:

  • Allow yourself a limited time to be lazy
    Nothing really wrong with lollygagging around on occasion. It's a good way to recharge after a physically or emotionally stressful time. But when it becomes an end in itself, then IMHO there's a problem. So give yourself the benefit, and discipline, of allowing a limted time per day- say, 20 minutes, just as an example - to lie about doing nothing. When the time is done, do something else. You can decrease the amount per day, but the time cannot be banked. But don't paint yourself into a corner whereby you don't allow yourself any downtime at all. We all need that. That's not laziness, that's recuperation.
  • Find and examine your laziness "triggers"
    For some people, it's the TV. For others, it's the computer. For others still, it's the pub. Find out which one starts you on the layabout path, and do something different every second time. For instance, if it's the TV that gets you (probably the biggest time waster since man discovered he had a pipe), turn it off and so something different, something positive: Take the dog for a walk... Do the dishes... Vacuum the house (mine needs doing... you can come here lol). Then allow yourself the freedom to go back to the TV the next time you feel lazy. If it's the computer, give yourself a limited amount of time per day to be online or whatever - and that time cannot be banked. Then decrease the time once every few days by a couple of minutes until you're down to a reasonable level.
    The point here is to wean you off of the laziness triggers by replacing them with something positive.
  • Exercise
    Yep, that old grunting standby, exercise. It doesn't have to be weight training or running laps. Get together with some friends and go play basketball or go swimming in the local pool. Not only will you look and feel better, you'll likely meet some wimmen too.

Laziness is merely being motivated to do unproductive things that tend to be easy and comfortable. So you are motivated, just not in the way you would like.

Whilst action is the answer, there is a precusor to this. Spend time on asking yourself why doing something is worth more than the initial unease of a task, remembering that that initial step is probably the hardest and won't last forever.

Most people eventually reach a point where the say ENOUGH and bite the bullet. Just keep on asking that question. Those who die unfulfilled stopped asking themselves the question and end up numbing the gnawing pain with distraction activities, beer, drugs and food.
