To make laziness work for you, put some effort into it
Strategic idleness is a high art and hard to pull off. ‘To do nothing at all is the most difficult thing in the world, the most difficult and the most intellectual.’ Oscar Wilde. Neel Burton writing in Aeon magazine investigates our perceptions of laziness, arguing that if laziness is consciously pursued then it is a pastime worth celebrating.
