The question relies on the following assumptions any of which can be challenged:
1)there is such thing as destiny
2)destiny can't be changed
3)destiny does not depend on your actions
and a few more that I am too tired to write out right now.
yes it does depend on those. but if one is destined to regain health, then one cannot simply do nothing, eg "in destiny's book" if one will regain health how does one know that it's not planned to go to the doctor to regain health.

Assuming that each individual is assigned a different letter of the alphabet, and that everything in the known universe is assigned a number, and each individual is assigned a number beside their alphabetical letter from which all other numbers effect that number, destiny is made by the choices of the individual by there interaction with other numbers. It is destiny that the individual will die without seeing a specific doctor. But it is destiny that the individual will live by seeing the right one.
Destiny is a changing variable from which all other variables in the universe effect the solution.

Lazy-bones Paradox - Back to the Paradoxes
If destiny designed a master plan, which defines everything that is to happen, isn't it useless to for example go to a doctor? If I am ill and it is my destiny to regain health, than I will regain health whether I visit a doctor or I don't. And if I shall not be healthy again, than I will not with or without help.
If I am ill and destiny has a definite plan for me, than it is useless to go anywhere.
How could you question the presented opinion?

Anyway, the concept of destiny is for ones own self. It comforts you when made a wrong decision or opted for something not-so-nice. But it should never stop you from TRYING to make the best possible decision.

I have small understanding of the human condition insofar as free will and destiny. I enjoy hearing it restated in a challenging paradox that seems to poke fun at our collective ignorance.
What I find interesting is the title of this paradox..."Lazy Bones".
All in all that is what it is.. a choice..
we are ignorant to our own decisions!
Destiny is merely an opportunity to decide or make a choice. I do however, believe that everything happens for a reason (unknown to us at the given moment, of course) and that every little thing "Could/Could Not" be predetermined Destiny. There is no way of knowing for sure WHAT is our destiny but we can control our choices! In that sense if I want go to a doctor because I am sick regardless if I will get better or not.. will it or will it not make me better or worse? I love destiny...and the "laziness" of our choices because of it... or as hughes wrote.... collective ignorance!
