Laziness is the mother of invention

Lazy or efficient?

From one of the funniest ADHD (and my daughter’s favourite) stars of YouTube, nigahiga, on the primary and smartest driver for invention and change – laziness.
  • Why would anyone invent a washing machine if they enjoy doing the washing?
  • Why would anyone develop an electric pepper mill if it wasn’t so exhausting twisting the top backwards and forward
  • What is the point in hard work when you can invent short-cuts or outsource the task to someone else?
