In fact Larry wants you to turn all of those normally bad things into virtues by doing them in an enlightened manner.

Have hubris but maintain it intact by being good enough to justify it.

Be lazy, but think ahead to anticipate demands on your time and head them off in advance. For instance it is less work to write good documentation then call RTFM than it is to answer questions.

Be impatient but take it out by getting to good answers fast rather than complaining.

In other words let each deadly sin redeem itself by motivating you to act in a virtuous manner. :-)
