16 Struggles Only Ambitiously Lazy People Will Understand

So many plans, so little motivation.

Ambitiously Lazy We Heart It

There are two kinds of people in this world. There are the ambitious people who will do anything and everything it takes to make their way to the top. Then there are the people who do what they need to do to get by, but that extra effort is way too much to even think about.

However, there is a third type of person and they're an extraordinary oxymoron. These people are the ambitiously lazy. You know, the type of people who could be totally awesome if they put forth a little effort.


Though there are times these folks push themselves, the rest of the time they can't even be bothered to plug in your cell phone. 

Most ambitiously lazy people fall in their 20s because while they're kind of an adult, they still love to pretend their responsibilities don't apply to them. 20-somethings think they have all the time in the world to be ambitious, so why not be lazy just a bit longer?

They are a special breed, but a damn awesome one. There are exceptions, of course, and I applaud you for either being extremely lazy or intensely ambitious.

Ambitiously lazy people choose to sit right here and enjoy that sweet spot between making plans and Netflix. There's always next weekend to find a date, I guess.


Here are 16 struggles only ambitiously lazy people understand:

15You always offer to help someone in the kitchen, praying that they will say there's nothing for you to do. Reverse psychology, baby!
