Balancing act: Is it ever OK to just be lazy?

Published: Tuesday, Feb. 19 2013 9:56 a.m. MST

In our society today, people who are so busy that they're constantly running from one task to another seem to be those who are most admired. I know I feel like a slacker if I ever slow down for a minute without a good reason. Maybe I'm afraid that, if I allow myself to be a bit lazy now and then, I'll get to like it so much that it will become a habit. Is that a real danger?

Please send me your thoughts on this topic, and I'll share some of your ideas in a future column.

For now, I'm left to wonder whether writing a column about laziness makes me lazy, or whether the fact that I met yet another deadline makes me sufficiently industrious.

It will probably take another 11 years of columns to figure that one out.
