Most people frown upon laziness. Not us. We salute it. And according to Michael Lewis, author of the bestsellers Moneyball, The Big Short, and many more, it just might be the key to success. In a recent interview, Lewis explained why laziness never seemed like a bad thing in his mind, and how it's helped him succeed. In fact, Lewis recalled, his father had him convinced that there was a Lewis family crest with this motto: "Do as little as possible, and that unwillingly, because it is better to receive a slight reprimand than perform an arduous task." Embracing laziness has helped him be successful because he focuses his efforts only where it really matters, he explained. 


What is the laziest thing you have ever done?
