There lived a lazy man in a village. He was so lazy that he did not do any of his work on time. He would often lie in bed till late in the morning and then when he woke up. Sometimes he was sitting here, sometimes he was sitting there. Sometime he would be talking to him, and sometimes he would be talking to her.
Sometimes he would start playing with children and sometimes he would start doing unnecessary work early in the morning. So in this way he would spend his morning time and then when the afternoon started approaching. He would think that it is about to be afternoon. So I will take a bath and have dinner first. Then I will work. When he eats his food then he think.
I will rest for a while and then I will get back to work. When he takes rest he falls asleep. And he would go into a deep sleep of one and a half or two hours. When someone wakes up from sleep. By then the evening time would approach and he would think that he will start work little while. But he becomes helpless as per habit.
and then starts doing some unnecessary work or starts chatting with a friend or neighbor. Or he would go out for a walk somewhere. This way his evening would pass and night would come. At night, after dinner, when he would go to sleep. He would be filled with guilty. He would feel very sad thinking that his day had been wasted like this. He would sleep every night with the determination.
That he would wake up early tomorrow morning and start his work. Neither would he procrastinate in any way nor would he do it out of laziness. But when morning came, his laziness would again engulf him. He would not feel like leaving the bed. He would wake up late and would do all the work as per habit.
Which he had done the previous day. So in this way he was trapped in the cycle of isolation and procrastination. It was not that I did not want to do anything, Or doesn't want to break this cycle of laziness Many times he would break this cycle of laziness and get busy in doing his important work. But he could not maintain his new habit for long and again fell into his old habit of procrastination.
Due to his laziness and habit of postponing his work. along with him, his family members were also very upset . Because he kept putting aside the work which was needed to run his family. Farming was his only source of income. But he kept procrastinating in farming work. He neither did the weeding on time. Nor took proper care of the crops. Nor did he water the crops on time.
Due to which his crop was less than others and he was not able to earn enough from it to meet the expenses of his household easily. Due to lack of money at home, he often had to face his wife's anger and taunts and sometimes it would come to the point of fighting. Due to which he started getting very worried. But despite trying, he was not able to break this vicious cycle of his mental laziness.
One day he was sitting outside his house thinking of a way out of his laziness. Then suddenly his eyes fell on a Saint who lived in a temple at some distance from his house. As soon as he saw the Saint, the lazy man remembered the disciplined daily routine of the Saint. He thought that the Saint wakes up every morning before 4:00 and takes bath.
In the river outside the village. After that, when Most of the villagers are sleeping at that time he was engaged in his worship, meditation etc. And by the time the villagers wake up in the morning and start their daily routine. This Saint has already completed his main daily tasks by cleaning the temple premises. After that they go to the village for alms.
and after bringing alms they prepare their own food. After having food, he study religious scriptures the whole afternoon. And then in the evening he also gives sermons and conversations with the devotees coming to the temple. After this, he performs the evening aarti and prepare his food and then after finishing the rest of the temple work, he go to sleep on time.
So how are they able to remain so disciplined and hardworking. And this Saint has been following such a busy routine for years. After pondering over such questions for some time, the lazy person decides to go to that Saint and find out the reason of his lazy person. He immediately reaches the temple and after paying obeisance to that Saint,.
And tell him in a pleading voice. Saint, I have come to you with a big problem of mine. The Saint said, what is your problem? whom you consider so big. The lazy person narrated the whole story of his laziness and procrastination to the Saint. He said; Saint, I am very lazy and keep postponing the work I wake up late in the morning.
And then waste my morning time in unnecessary work. After that I keep postponing my important work the whole day. And my whole day gets wasted and when night comes, I feel guilty and sad. And it also hurts that I have wasted the whole day just like that. But the next day I repeat the same mistakes and waste time.
Sage, I have fallen into trap of laziness and procrastination. And I am not able to get out of this. Please show me a way out of this laziness of mine I have come to you with great hopes.

You do not have to look at the screen for 1 1/2- 2hours after waking up in the morning. We have to stay away from it. See mobile has been made for our convenience and it is very good. But if this mobile is making us sick and weak.
Then it is very bad. And this is our weakness. Because the mobile does not jump on its own and comes into our hands. It is we, it is our weakness who keeps clinging to it.
