If you've ever followed my Instagram feed, you know that I have a thing for shopping carts not being put back. Most people I know think that I have an obsession with the carts themselves. That's not the case. My obsession has more to do with the laziness that is displayed when someone doesn't take the extra 30 seconds to put back their shopping cart in the return area. Laziness is like a disease. It spreads if you aren't careful which is why my advice to you today is to "fear laziness". I'll give you an example. One person borrows a camera and some equipment and doesn't put the bag back on the shelf. The next person comes in who also borrowed a bag and does the same thing, "because the other bag was like that on the floor." That's how laziness spreads. It's easy to follow someone else who's lazy because you justify that in your head by saying that the other person did it so it's ok for you to do that too. It's much harder to take the time to actually put the bag back where it belongs. I see this all the time. I see it in the cases of cameras and other equipment just left on the table by the chargers. I see it in the room by all the camera bags. I see it in the camera bags where students don't put back their batteries or mics. Laziness is everywhere and I want each of you to do a better job of doing the harder thing. Break that cycle of laziness and #putitback! For this week's blog post, tell me how you can help to break the laziness cycle in your life. What can you do personally here in school and at home to stop being lazy?
