A couple of months ago, Demi Moore posted a link to a website called One Word. As the title would suggest, you’re given one word and sixty seconds to write something. The aim, much like the very good Write Or Die, is to simply get you writing without much thought about what it is that you’re writing. After all, that blank page is often the killer for creativity – that blank page can seem like a mountain too high to climb, and the words simply refuse to come.
So today’s word was “lazy”. Below is my sixty second splurge on the word.
Lazy. Not doing anything. Not able to do anything, not willing? No motivation or just no desire? Or is laziness true happiness? The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide? The ability to put aside the stuff we think we need to do in order to do the things we actually want to do? Is it a shirking of responsibility, or taking control of our own destinies?
