A Hunger Artist and an Efficiency Expert

I'm working on an idea right now, about a supposedly talented and gifted efficiency consultant who works her magic for reasons similiar to why Kafka's "Hunger Artist" fasts. The Hunger Artist of Kafka's famous story fasts and is quite good at it simply because he does not like food. The Efficiency Artiste makes less work of things simply because she abhors the thought of work. She is, in reality, lazy in spirit and prefers to spend her time thinking of other things than the management of commodities, and optimization of reporting structures.
