#1624 – Absent

I’ve had some jobs where I worked there long enough that my conscious brain wasn’t needed anymore to perform my assigned tasks. I could unload boxes from a truck and put them on shelves while thinking about more important things like “What do the lyrics in that song really mean?” I would “wake up” hours later when I suddenly realized I was late for my lunch break.

  1. Is it a bad thing that this reminds me of when I was in school? I would think about other stuff all the time in school, except if I was about to take some important test or if I had loads of homework to do (which was almost never)…

    It’s as if the world doesn’t want you to exercise your brain…or your body either. We’re all slaves to the system! lol

    Sadly my brain does this most the time. That or it’s playing a song in a constant loop or whatever I’m watching/listening to at the moment.

    Heard a fascinating interview about habits last Sunday. We spend a lot of effort making everyday tasks into Routines (programmers, take note!) so that we don’t have to devote conscious attention to them.
    When’s the last time you missed a turnoff on the way home from work, when you’d intended to do a (less-than-common) errand – Woops!
