The Joy of Doing Just Enough: The Secret Art of Being Lazy and Getting Away With It

ISBN: 9781682681466

For anyone who’s ever heard a motivational speech and immediately vomited, a guide to ignoring society’s obsession with success.

Being lazy is easy. The real art is being chilled; living unscathed by the never-ending reams of self-help and inspiration. Rather than doing less, do just enough. Screw TED Talks, marathon training, tips for keeping plants alive, Instagram and all self-aggrandising social media. Ninety-nine percent of us are just doing our thing. Being a person is hard enough without all the pressure to be good at it.
