I am looking for English equivalent word for a Tamil word "மலைப்பு". Here is the Tamil saying I am trying to translate to English,
களைத்தவனோடு கூட வேலைக்கு செல்லலாம் அனால் மலைத்தவனோடு மட்டும் வேலைக்கு செல்ல கூடாது
This roughly translates to:
You are better of working with someone who is tired/skinny than,
- Someone who looks at a small task but believes and professes it to be mountainous task. This demotivates them and also you.
- Someone who could have completed the task in less time than the time they spend on thinking and talking about how big of the task for them to complete.
- Someone who procrastinates the task for tomorrow knowing that tomorrow is not going be any better than today.
- Someone who weighs you down, slows you down and demotivates you and makes you realize you would have accomplished the task much faster alone than this person.
Can you think of a word that describes this type of person?
