Bill Gates said that lazy people tend to streamline processes and find shortcuts that inevitably lead to productivity. Obviously this is a blanket statement. Not all lazy people are efficient. You have to be lazy, but also smart to pull this off.

Smart-people lazy: that special kind of lazy that led to inventions like the remote control. Honestly, who wants to actually go ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE ROOM to change the channel, the air conditioning, or the stereo? Thanks for the lazy people. They enable my own laziness.

I imagine there are other things that lead you to the conclusion that he never gets things done, because I think many people buy books and don't read them - especially self-help books.

Whether YDI or not depends on who bought the book in the first place. Did he buy it willingly or did you buy it for him expecting a magic list of chores to get done?

In addition, some of those "self-help" books are incredibly condescending garbage claiming that everything you do is worthless and wrong until you do it the author's way... or they're just platitudes repeated over and over again. While I don't want to excuse laziness, I can't really blame someone for not caring much about those kind of books.
