Interest Based Priority Arrangement System

Zero Time

I have a condition. It prevents me from doing a lot of physical activities. People closest to me know about my condition – and now I want to share it with you. I have a condition – its called laziness.

I don’t like the term lazy – it has a negative connotation. I prefer the term ‘Interest based priority arrangement system’. Basically, if I am interested in something, it winds up at the top of this queue. And if I hate doing something, it goes to the other end. For some unexplained reason, many people don’t agree with me when I say that this method is the most effective productivity booster…

Others: “You are lazy”
Me: “You say that like its a bad thing!”

As I said earlier, I find ‘Interest based priority arrangement system’ a great personal productivity booster. I do all the items at the top of my to do list without fail.

You will understand why after you take a look at my todo list for today…

If you want to play a computer game, do it. After that, think about the next thing you want to do – then do it. Then start over again. Continue until dead.

2. Avoid Distractions

Other people will try to turn you away from this path. Parents telling you to study. Bills asking you to pay them. Bosses ordering you to work. I find that turning up the iPod volume until the music drowns out all the other voices helps in avoiding these distractions. Learn to ignore them and you will be fine.



4. Let go

And last but not the least, you don’t have to complete everything you have started. If you don’t like doing something, you can just
