There is a very good reason the preliminary practices come before the main part of practice. Every single aspect of the preliminary practices is meant to be like a pestle to grind and smash your laziness. Imagine that you are making hot sauce, acbaar, with a stone mortar and pestle. When making this Tibetan salsa, you successively add garlic, ginger, chili peppers, and spices, grinding them all together into a smooth sauce. It's the same with the preliminaries: you smash your laziness first with prostrations, then with V ajrasattva practice, then with mandala offerings and guru yoga, till all the laziness is gone.
