The great seers and saints of various faiths and religions have time and again very dearly conveyed the importance of time and the immense results it has brought forth in achieving prolific desired results.
The above verse of the great saint Kabir Das ji has shared his supreme learning with us relating to the importance of time. It conveys to us to wean the languid attitude and to do the work that needs to be done immediately without procrastinating.
A person with a lackadaisical attitude shows no enthusiasm and puts forth a half-hearted effort. However, it's more of a dreamy, laid back approach rather than sheer laziness. Students who display a passive-aggressive personality style may be dreamy and languid in a variety of ways. They will be extremely tardy, absent- minded in class, running late and being way too late past the due time when submitting assignments, to simply being late to school and many more.
This attitude is obviously a display of resistance or defiance to do the expected things. When questioned about this habitual tardiness and deficient in alertness, students will give you all possible reasons to justify and give excuses in such a manner where the other party ends up feeling culpable or are usually caught off guard and disarmed by such reasons to counsel them thereon. We are made to feel these excuses as authentic extenuations.
It is utmost importance to address this lackadaisical attitude immediately among students so that it is not shrugged off either as issue of least importance saying students will grow out of it with age or transferring the blame onto parents or teachers.
It is important to consider this deficient attitude as the subject of most importance based on the below perspective:
Strict discipline, rules and awareness of adverse consequences will only allow a self check to this lackadaisical attitude in pupil. When we allow using a clear, fair and proportionate set of rules to be followed and lead by example this can be easily corrected.
It requires a change in consciousness, a herculean task, though not impossible. Cultivating positive habits, relatable and achievable goals will make way for big revolutionary changes. Now, it is established that being languid-tardy-lackadaisical, dreamy or lethargic is not at all an option to nurture in one self. The challenging part is to find ways and means to slowly wean it and gradually uproot it from our life.
Few tips for the same for virtuous and efficient habits in students to remove such lackadaisical attitude which are scientific and actionable steps to cure laziness:
When you are lazy that means there is no focused goal at that particular moment. So, define that for yourself . Remove all the distractions and always make the right choices.
