When you whine about your current lack of productivity...

Feb 28 2012 Published by under Uncategorized

Are you doing it because you subconsciously want a kick in the pants?

or

Are you doing it because you want permission to be a slacker?

or is there some third option we're missing?  (Maybe whining for the sake of whining?  I dunno...)

#1 generally wants a kick in the pants, but sometimes #2 is an enabler, which forces #1 to stop being a slacker even though she's got permission, which is probably better for her anyway...  #1, otoh, wants everybody to be miserably productive because misery loves company.  (When she says it's ok to take a break because you need it... it means you really do need it.)

#2 Sometimes all three, but usually mainly the first.
