Prediction. 12 months from now I will no longer work in corporate cube farmdom. I’m done. The best things in life take time to pursue. I better get busy doing what I want to do because this old body ain’t getting any younger. And this day-to-day life (as I sit on the dullest sales and marketing meeting under the customer pipeline and the many product failures going on – oooof! serenity now!! – who the heck ever sat and dreamed in 7th grade to have a treadmill of existence that goes on like this for 1 week off a year? who? you know in Japan I heard people just die at work regularly from overwork. dare i say, it’s not so much about overwork but about automoton work. We’ve become extensions of computers not the other way around. – this bites…. this is not my beautiful house or job or vision or anything – and I’m supposed to compete for this?! – it’s really just malaise and ennui day by day) I am so out of here.
