Carolyn Lawrence on: The benefits of laziness?!

Podcast: Why “lean in” if laziness can be just as effective?

Lucy Kellaway, a columnist at the Financial Times, gives a hilarious 5 minute podcast on her latest point of view that laziness is good, more efficient in fact, and that we’d do better to learn from top field commanders in the German army who were chosen for their special blend of being clever and lazy, which got results. She goes onto say that women’s “undoing” is that we “try too hard” and are “martyrs to industriousness.”

I think she’s onto something.
