Saturday, it’s a matter of semantics…

Laziness and procrastination are different things.

Do you see the difference?

I am sometimes lazy.  There are just those days that I don’t want to do anything, except maybe read.  There are those times when all I want to do is nap.  Not because I am tired but because I am not disposed to exertion, work, or activity.  However, I can’t say I dislike work, though there are chores I don’t necessarily like.


I often  procrastinate.  Many days I will put off, delay, or defer something to a later time.  There are times I postpone or delay things needlessly.  Like today, it is late afternoon and I am just getting to today’s post because I was doing other things.


When I am lazy I don’t do anything.  When I procrastinate I do things that don’t really need to be done instead of those things that do need to be done.  So, lazy is doing nothing and procrastinating is doing something but not what should be done.

There definitely is a difference.

Maybe, someday I will tell you the difference between being a person of discretion and being a picky person.
