There is no such thing as a job for lazy people. Everyone has to work hard to achieve success. However, some jobs are better suited for those who want to work less.
In general, jobs that require minimal physical activity or manual labour are the best for lazy people. For example, jobs in the service industry, like waiter or bartender, are a good fit because they require little training, and the work is primarily sedentary. Sales positions can also be a good option because most work is done over the phone or online.
Jobs best avoided by lazy people involve a lot of movement and physical labour, like a construction worker or nurse. These types of jobs require long hours and can be very demanding.
