Lazy People Invent Things Because …

Lech Walesa, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, once said: “I’m lazy. But it’s the lazy people who invented the wheel and the bicycle because they didn’t like walking or carrying things.” 

Call it laziness, creativity, or genius, whatever it is, I love finding tools that help me get things done in a smarter way. Such smart and lazy people have given the world inventions like a baby romper that dusts the floor while they crawl, glasses with mirrors arranged so that you can read a book in your lap even when you lie down flat, and suitcases that your kids can ride on through the airport like a scooter.

Most of the people I know, including me, can be classified as lazy and we all not only invent things to make life easier (if we are the inventive type), we appreciate anything someone else has already invented for us.
