Reticular Activating System: The Quiescent Slacker

by bxrtley

Yesterday these two “random” definitions popped up on my screensaver, in sequential order:

Quiescent: in a state of inactivity or dormancy

Slacker: a person who avoids work or effort

A “Quiescent Slacker” avoids work or effort and lulls into an apethetic state. A runaway who wastes away.

The brain’s Reticular Activating System makes you more aware of things around you related to what you’ve been focusing on. And I’ve been harboring the fear of not working hard enough. Gotta shift my focus from the negative thinking. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Neither do you. Trust the grind. Keep working.
