I guess I could say the same. I'm pretty lazy, but when I actually sit down and focus, I get things done pretty quickly. Luckily my job consists of me sitting at a desk answering calls and stuff. Not that demanding.

I also have to say I am the same. I dread having to start things, but once I'm into it and have a rhythm for whatever it is going, I can work through it and finish in a good time.

There are times I tend to get super lazy when doing things...but thats when I got less sleep or just plain tired. Other times I'm more alert and energetic when I do things. I will say, however, when music is playing, I work very well.

Manual labor if its something like lifting things, I can't really do much. If it's something like tidying things up, I can do that. It depends what kind it is.

Manual labor and I don't mix, we're like oil and water...

Make sense? Oh, what fun is there in making sense?

Eh, I don't mind manual labor. Sometimes I can be bothered, sometimes I can't.

My job involves a lot of manual labour - unpacking beer deliveries and whatnot into a liquor store. I'm not terrible at it, it's repetitive work and it allows my mind to travel elsewhere. Sometimes I feel like I go into a trance of thought and then I wake up and it's done!

No I don't like manual labour. My life has been too centered around being lazy and doing absolutely nothing, so if you want me to do labour for x amount of hours in a row, I'm gonna fail.

But my job currently consists of sitting at the computer, and what I'm studying with fall me into that line of work as well, so I'll be okay. lol

Also if the topic is actually about procrastination - yes, once I get down to doing something, it's a lot less harder/annoying than I had imagined in my head. I just have to get that idea through my skull and stop procrastinating lmao.

edit: oh darn i didnt want to post a 3000th post but i forgot. well here it is

Oh, I have such a difficult time starting things.
Just taking the step of sitting down, turning off all distractions, & beginning to work (tests in this regards).
Once the actual work is started & distractions have been turned off, than I am able to work at a reasonable pace (taking OCD tendencies into account).

For acts of manual labor however, the sooner they're done, the better (taking garbage out, dishes, etc...).

I can do manual labor but if I get put up to too many things I'll just sigh and be like "ugh, fine" xD

I'm cool with it. Especially if it doesn't require much thinking; then I can let my mind wander to other things, as Shining Raichu mentioned.
I can't think of a good signature.

Shamefully, I kind of enjoy manual labor. I get more of a sense of accomplishment out of doing things that aren't all that congitive, unlike artistic things where I just feel like nothing ever ends. I wouldn't have a problem washing dishes, in fact I like washing dishes, if it wasn't for the fact that it's horrible pay, I'm too overqualified, and with all the schooling I'm getting, would be a horrible, horrible waste of my life and money.

I wish media jobs had rotational positions or something. I don't like, no wait, I hate working behind a computer all day. I'd love it if one week they did make me the cook or dishwasher, just to get out of the doldrums. Deliver and sort mail? Move boxes around? Sure, why not. Sounds like an adventure.

Other Stuff That's Totally Uncool and Not Worth Your Time!
