Laziness, which he defines as being slow to act, can be a lot more helpful than you think. It prevents you from being overwhelmed with lots of opportunities you said yes to but don't actually care about, Lewis says in an interview with Ryan Smith, CEO of online survey company Qualtrics.
"My laziness serves as a filter," Lewis said. "Something has to be really good before I'll decide to work on it."
As Lewis sees it, being lazy helps you avoid being busy for the sake of being busy.
