There's a quote attributed to Bill Gates that I recite all the time: "I choose a lazy person to do a hard job; because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it." I love it because it captures a sentiment I've always found to ring true: There's a way to turn a vice into a virtue. Lazy people are the best at finding easy ways to do things. Messy people have the best cleaning tips. And people who are self-admittedly awful at managing their inboxes have the best advice for communicating via email.
