One thing about a job, to keep it you've at least got to be there. You've got to get up in the morning, put on your clothes, and head out the door. You can't lollygag around day after day and never leave the house.
That's probably a good thing. But it does have a down side. You know what I'm talking about. It means that some times you're going to wake up and not want to do nothin'. Still, you know you've got to go in. You're going to go in to work even though you don't really feel like it. And of course your performance that day won't quite be what you or your boss expect of you.
My job as an instructor/professor involved speaking in front of a class 2, 3, sometimes 4 hours a day. I had to have something to say. Many's the day when I felt like I didn't have anything to say, but I went anyway.
In a very small way it was like having a talk show on TV. Except Jay Leno has a team of writers and a band to turn to when things slack off a bit.
Nowadays, since I'm retired, if I don't feel like doing something, it don't get done. But I look at it this away: By not doing something when I don't really feel like it, I'm keeping down the level of half assed work that's done, work that I'm not happy doing. It's a kind of quality control. The way I see it, being a slacker is a way to improve overall efficiency.
This old Hank Williams tune is for all the slackers out there, myself included. We're all just waitin'.
