Laziness does not exist : a defense of the exhausted, exploited, and overworked

Price, Devon, author
2021

A social psychologist uncovers the psychological basis of the "laziness lie", which originated with the Puritans and has ultimately created blurred boundaries between work and life with modern technologies and offers advice for not succumbing to societal pressure to "do more". Price believed that productivity was the best way to measure his self-worth-- until his health began to suffer. Here he explains that the "laziness lie" began with the Puritans, and has continued to proliferate as digital work tools have blurred the boundaries between work and life. We become caught in a constant cycle of achievement-hunting and burnout. Price encourages us to let go of guilt. By becoming attuned to our own limitations and needs we can begin to resist the pressure to meet outdated societal expectations.
