I used to be one of those rat race people.
I was stuck in a dead-end job I hated, I wasn’t learning anything new ...
... my work wasn’t appreciated, and I felt like a slave just robotically processing
one project after another.
There was no variety. There was no room for creativity. There was no way out … or so I thought.
Like most of my colleagues I was frustrated at the situation I was in..
... but I didn’t know what to do about it.
I had a victim mentality.
I blamed the big bad system, which I thought was so much more powerful than poor little me.
I felt powerless.
I did try to find a solution.
One day after a particularly crappy day at the office...
I desperately typed “I hate my job” into Google in the hope that
someone out there had a solution for me.
They didn’t ...
It turned out there are a lot of books targeted at people like me, a lot of them bestsellers.
Months later I was made redundant from my full-time job ...
... and it wasn't long before my girlfriend walked out on me.
She just couldn't take the financial pressure we was both under ...
... and to be honest I couldn't blame her.
