There is a well known saying that goes “always give the hardest job to the laziest person because they will find the easiest way to do it.” What are some real life examples of this?

  1. I have to admit that responsible but lazy people are my go-to people if I want to get anything done. Especially the ones that get stressed out when they have things to do on their plate – they’re just engines of productivity.

  2. Me, I am an example of that.

    “Hey we need these 300 different things printed out” normally done all manually one by one. Did some fandangling and got it into a pdf to print everything.

    Setting boundaries is a good way I’ve found tbh. People hate doing the work themselves. So if you give them a firm deadline and say “after *date* you’re responsible for doing it yourself” you can get everything in and done way quicker
