This is my opinion….Let me re-emphasize these words…This is my opinion….It may hurt majority population who are doing a day job, But again Its my opinion, one should never get a job or even apply for a job. Even though, I was working in a multinational corporation for almost 14 years.
Why is it so?
Well…..There are 100’s of reasons to support this opinion of mine. But I found this article from Steve Pavlina as best to support my opinion about a day job.
10 Reasons written by him are:
1. Income for dummies.
Getting a job and trading your time for money may seem like a good idea. There’s only one problem with it. It’s stupid! It’s the stupidest way you can possibly generate income! This is truly income for dummies.
2. Limited experience.
You might think it’s important to get a job to gain experience. But that’s like saying you should play golf to get experience playing golf. You gain experience from living, regardless of whether you have a job or not. A job only gives you experience at that job, but you gain “experience” doing just about anything, so that’s no real benefit at all. Sit around doing nothing for a couple years, and you can call yourself an experienced meditator, philosopher, or politician.
3. Lifelong domestication.
Getting a job is like enrolling in a human domestication program. You learn how to be a good pet.
Look around you. Really look. What do you see? Are these the surroundings of a free human being? Or are you living in a cage for unconscious animals? Have you fallen in love with the color beige?
4. Too many mouths to feed.
Employee income is the most heavily taxed there is.
You only get paid a fraction of the real value you generate. Your real salary may be more than triple what you’re paid, but most of that money you’ll never see. It goes straight into other people’s pockets.
What a generous person you are!
5. Way too risky.
The idea that a job is the most secure way to generate income is just silly. You can’t have security if you don’t have control, and employees have the least control of anyone. If you’re an employee, then your real job title should be professional gambler.
6. Having an evil bovine master.
When you run into an idiot in the entrepreneurial world, you can turn around and head the other way. When you run into an idiot in the corporate world, you have to turn around and say, “Sorry, boss.”
7. Begging for money.
When you want to increase your income, do you have to sit up and beg your master for more money? Does it feel good to be thrown some extra Scooby Snacks now and then?
8. An inbred social life.
Many people treat their jobs as their primary social outlet. They hang out with the same people working in the same field. Such incestuous relations are social dead ends
9. Loss of freedom.
It takes a lot of effort to tame a human being into an employee. The first thing you have to do is break the human’s independent will. A good way to do this is to give them a weighty policy manual filled with nonsensical rules and regulations.
10. Becoming a coward.
Have you noticed that employed people have an almost endless capacity to whine about problems at their companies? But they don’t really want solutions – they just want to vent and make excuses why it’s all someone else’s fault.
Still want a job?
If you’re currently a well-conditioned, well-behaved employee, your most likely reaction to the above will be defensiveness. It’s all part of the conditioning. But consider that if the above didn’t have a grain of truth to it, you wouldn’t have an emotional reaction at all. This is only a reminder of what you already know. You can deny your cage all you want, but the cage is still there. Perhaps this all happened so gradually that you never noticed it until now… like a lobster enjoying a nice warm bath.
If any of this makes you mad, that’s a step in the right direction. Anger is a higher level of consciousness than apathy, so it’s a lot better than being numb all the time. Any emotion — even confusion — is better than apathy.
I will Highly encourage you to read the entire article at
I can guarantee you that if you found yourself agitated or somewhat angry then you are on right track as you have just given some time to think about your job and your well conditioned slavery.
I urge you….Live your next version of your life…..Don’t waste this precious life for someone else. Don’t accept to live your life with someone else’s ego while you are giving your best 8-10 Hrs of your everyday life.Life is simply not meant for this reason. Life is to live your life on your own terms, be yourself. Breakfree all limitation and you will find that you are making more money than working in your job what I call cage. Believe me, you will be much happier than ever.
You just need to trust yourself and take your first step towards your real life for which god actually sent you in this world. You will need to pay yourself while doing this….Yes you need to pay emotionally and with patience while being in new way of life. But just stay there and you will find yourself there, much happier emotionally and financially.
Wish You Best in your Life….
