As a self-directed entrepreneur and homesteader, I’ve always struggled with laziness. For as long as I can remember, the temptation to lay back and do nothing has been a stubborn obstacle to my productivity. But over the years, I’ve discovered strategies that have helped combat laziness in myself. Maybe they can help you, too.  


 

Choose Work You Love 

rafterIt’s a whole lot easier to grow despondent about the task ahead of you 

if you hate it. That’s why it’s important to choose work that you’re passionate about. Doctor Howard Thurman said it best: "Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go do that. Because the world needs people who are alive." If you’d rather build a hand-hewn log cabin than plant potatoes, by all means break out the adze.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
