Vicious cycle of being lazy

If you are lazy, more likely you will be in the vicious cycle as shown above.

Spend more money for convenience
When you are lazy, you tend to spend more money for convenience. For example you may cab/taxi instead of bus/mrt, buying food nearby at a premium price for the sake of convenience.

Work more to earn more money
After spending unnecessary money, you may need to work more to earn more money to pay for your convenience.

Feeling tired after working long hours
Since you are working for long hours, you tend to feel very tired after work.

Become lazy
Since you are tired, you tend to be lazy again.

i beg to differ. The solution to get ouf of this cycle is simply, be hardworking. OK, tat's just my guess. But sometimes you do have to pay more for convenience. For example, if you're working long hours, but you have no time to look after your baby at home. Do you employ a full-time maid or a part-time nanny? Does paying less gives you even more burden to handle? Since you are already struggling to cope at home, you will feel more stress at work.

Have you started your journey towards financial freedom?
