People often confuse the lazy with the laid-back, and I get it, as both words imply unproductivity.

Dear reader, Here we'll discuss about 4 signs that show you're not lazy, you just have a laid-back personality.

1. You value rest as much as you value work. 

The laid-back might say, "Rest is as important as work." The lazy might say, "Why work?"

2. You have a sense of responsibility, you just don't panic

The laid-back might say, "I know what I need to do." The lazy might say, "LOL."

If the lazy will even say anything. Lazy people will not have a sense of responsibility at all. I think this is one of the greatest separators between lazy and laid-back.

3. You're Accountable for Yourself

The laid-back might say, "That's on me." The lazy might say, "Oh, was that today?"

The difference between a laid-back person and someone lazy is that you'll also take responsibility for something that you didn't finish.

4. You still get things done

The laid-back might say, "Yep, I'm on it." The lazy might say, "Nah."

Honestly, the rest of us need to take a page from your book to stop and smell the roses from time to time.
