    23. 23. On Being a Slacker@Work We slackers represent the bright side of overachievers. Slackers are as smart , educated, talented and driven as any standard-issue overachiever you’ll find. The core difference is that slackers have the gift of satisficing: we can stop at “good enough” and go home unburdened by what was left undone. Though slackers will satisfice , it would be a mistake to assume that slackers never exceed expectations . Quite the contrary. Because slackers are at their best when focused upon problems and issues that are important to them, slacker work product is among the finest in the world. Therein lies the key to understanding the slacker ethic: slackers are best at doing what is important to them . This knowledge is important not only to those who work with slackers, but also to slackers themselves (Slacker, know thyself!). When slackers understand why they aren't like the other kids in the office, they can begin to employ lifehacks that afford many favorable benefits. Foremost among these benefits is the ability to pursue ones own interests while simultaneously being seen as a superstar at work. Source http://www.changethis.com/sp-4.SlackerAtWork
