  1. Find Fearless Motivation playlist and watch one video per day. Only one. But daily. Laziness will dissolve at some point.

  2. To all the people blaming ADD:

    That is a bullshit excuse, I have to ADD been on Ritalin and other types of meds. A lot of people don't seem to understand ADD and are using it as an excuse for laziness.
    People with ADD, especially the more intelligent ones have a brain that rewards them if they pay attention to something they think is interesting. This is called novelty-induced attention.
    Meaning that they can't concentrate if they think the subject is boring. However, what I am reading in the comments is that people still struggle to concentrate even if they think something is interesting. Now, this is a complete bullshit excuse that is not neurologically documented. Meaning that it all comes down to laziness. People with ADD can concentrate fine if they are interested, in fact, if they are interested they can concentrate even more intensely than normies, this is also neurologically documented.

    As for some tips:
    – stop watching porn it makes your ADD worse.
    – meditate.
    – 15 minutes of running in the morning.

    That's it these tips can change your life.

  3. What's up John? First, I just want to say thank-you for the content that you've made to help developer and entrepreneurs along their journey. Also, I just finished your Soft Skills book last month as it took time for me to really work through and it's been helpful.

    I watched this video when it was first released over two years ago. And in 2017, I realized that I was being somewhat lazy. I'd started Free Code Camp's front end developer program in the summer of 2016 and then stopped in 2017. I recently mad a go of it, which I wrote about in a LinkedIn article: the end of the day, I was simply being lazy. Thanks again John. Also, glad to see that you're still making new videos and didn't retire. 🙂

  4. Honestly i have this lazy issue, i planned to program a site in html, guess what? i wrote <html> and immediately gave up, felt so lazy that i couldn't handle it anymore.

  5. I think the biggest problem with laziness is that you are not sure why you are actually doing something.
    So maybe you could read a thousand pages book, but if you constantly ask yourself "is it worth it?", "why am I reading it?", "Am I not wasting my time?" then you will always lose motivation.

  6. I actually like this hard work.
    I did it for 3 months so far, EVERY fn DAY. 25+ hours a week. Learn + practice coding.
    I don't know if I'm crazy passionate but I love this hard work 99% of the time.

  7. I think you’re not lazy, you have an attention deficit and it’s not diagnosed. Many symptoms in this text. I suggest to listen to howtoadhd. It will blow your mind (even if he’s already).

  8. This was just mean. Calling someone lazy is unkind. There are very few people who are lazy for the sake of it. The rest of seemingly unproductive people are so because they are struggling or suffering. Beating down on that person more is not the solution or constructive. You're not expressing understanding and that's your first problem. You didn't empathize, you chose to criticize. You could just say I understand the struggle but this is what you can do: you can set bite sized goals, increase them slowly and when you're ready, but stay consistent, it's not always easy or fun, but if you push through, on the other end is accomplishment and feeling proud. When you call someone lazy, it indicates an unusual investment in what other people are doing. What other people are doing is for them, not for you. So it just seems like projection of the self talk of the person saying it. Maybe think about how you may be too hard on yourself and try be more understanding towards others. There are legitimate mental conditions that get in the way of cognition and learning, including what he specifically said about not being able to register words while reading.
