Be too lazy to fail?

I read a review recently by a journalist in a magazine, who’d interviewed the author of a book called ‘The Lazy Winner – The Art of Productive Laziness’. The book cover also has the bizarrely long subtitle: ‘How to do more with less effort and succeed in your work and personal life without rushing around like a headless chicken or putting in 100 hour weeks.’

On the basis of this article I bought the book online and read it from cover to cover. This is a unique occurrence.

I am in fact an avid reader, but when it comes to self-help books I only tend to read the first few chapters, grasp the concept and then find a nice place on a shelf for it. Book becomes shelf-fodder. (Not a unique occurrence.)

But every now and again I find a real treasure. The Lazy Winner is well written, witty and insightful.

In it Peter Taylor suggests applying more thought before leaping into action and throwing effort at a problem or task. A lazy winner, he says, aims for maximum result with minimum effort. Intrigued yet?

You can download a taster of the book on this link:

If you’re interested, DON’T pay full price of £14.99, get a used copy on Amazon for half the price or less.

    … but of course if you buy it on Amazon you will be supporting an international company that ignores it’s soclal responsibilities – like paying tax – which the rest of us do!
