The Slacker Equation

Slacker Manager writes about the slacker equation. It came out of a discussion that began with this:

Now, why is it that we are considered above average performers, but we could do better? I see three possibilities:

1. We throw in enough good stuff, and seem eager enough to do a good job, that our slacking is not noticed.
2. We are way above average, and even our slacking is above average.
3. We aren't slacking as much as we think we are.

Nobody can go full force all the time, so the question is, why do some people slack more than others?
