What has Andy Hagans and General Baron Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord got to do with each other?

General Baron Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord said,

“I divide officers into four classes — the clever, the lazy, the stupid and the industrious. Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever and industrious are fitted for the high staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy is fit for the very highest commands. He has the temperament and the requisite nerves to deal with all situations. But whoever is stupid and industrious must be removed immediately.”

Andy Hagans said,

“However ? know this ? I love being lazy. I love the feeling of not lifting a finger, and getting a check in the mail.”

You read so much dry, “How to pull SEO out of your ass” type posts on blogs and websites, it’s sometimes refreshing to go read a dude who gives something a little different.

The Most important virtue of the capitalist laziness

    I used to be ashamed of my laziness, but after a time I’ve come to realize it can help you pick the winners from the losers (project-wise) :-)
