Lazy Habits

Lazy habits begin when we are young. I saw on “Leave it to Beaver” the dad, Ward, explaining to the Beave about having lazy habits. The Beave did not want to do extra homework for the next day.  He told his father that if he died before the next day it would have been a waste of his time.  We all begin teaching our children good habits.  It starts with reading everyday, studying and preparing in advance for tests and practicing math. We learn bad habits sometimes by following our parents or family members.  If our parents keep a messy home, there is a good chance we will be messy.  However, many individuals like myself, prefer cleanliness on a daily basis.  Taking shortcuts on things is also a form  lazy habits.  Often when a person doesn’t clean and they are expecting a visitor they will throw all their dirty laundry in the washer and may or may not start it.  They will take all dirty dishes put them in the dishwasher and hope for the best.  All their take away containers will be pushed into their trash or someone else’s. There are also the people who do not wish to do their laundry, cook, or clean who will hire someone to do the work.  Even if they are slobs someone will clean up after them. One of the most lazy habits a person can have is to not pick up or hang up their clothes.  They leave piles until everything is dirty, wrinkled or stained and they have to do something about it.  This is also true regarding car maintenance.  I once worked with a man who never changed the oil in his vehicle.  Once the car died, then he purchased a new one and did the same thing all over again. When the oil was low he simply refilled it.  When our parents told us to pick up after ourselves it was the beginning of a positive habit.  Don’t you agree?
