TEXT:

Listen carefully and answer the questions below.

     When you’re lazy time passes slowly. It gives you a false impression that you don’t need to do anything at the moment, because everything can be done later. However, it only works up to the point where it turns out that there are a hundred overdue things and you only have two days to complete all of those tasks.
     Those two days are often a very optimistic scenario. It just so happens that people who postpone everything until the last minute cross the set deadlines and have plenty of problems in their professional and social lives. Such people are usually described as unreliable and people who deal with them slowly learn that trusting them is thoughtless.
     How to deal with laziness? First of all, you have to set priorities. Try to focus on the things you need to do, and that can not be rescheduled or should not wait. Don’t do too many things at once if you don’t have to, because it can distract you and it’s usually hard to focus on more than one project. The completion of subsequent tasks will give you a sense of progress. As a result, you will see that your work brings results.
     You need to remember that when you work hard a moment of rest is not a bad thing, but continuously prolonging it can make it so that people will perceive you as an irresponsible and reckless person.
