I read recently about people wearing Fitbits, or similar devices, to record their daily physical activity. To inflate their numbers they strap the device to their dog. While the owner is snacking or watching a screen, the dog is chasing things in the yard and accumulating additional ”steps.” I was so proud.
Of course, we’re not the only creatures that are lazy. We can still learn a lot from sloths and cats. It’s laziness linked with creativity that is our sweet spot. And, there’s the traditional human willingness to cheat and exploit the vulnerable. A real success formula.
That’s all I have time for. I’ve got to take a nap.
