It’s been 11 months since I quit the rat race. I live near the sea, I manage my own time, work on my own projects and build my own dreams.
I shiver when I look back at the time I was sitting in corporate office cubicle for 10-11 hours everyday… filling up spreadsheets with useless data or preparing and polishing dozens of presentations nobody was going to pay attention to. Corporations spend most of their time immitating work. 95% of work I did was rubbish for the sake of corporate bureaucracy. Corporations have borrowed from goverments the use of propaganda techniques to brainwash their employees into corporate loyalty.
I remember in the last company I worked the heir of the business empire was giving speech saying things like ” in our company we are all family”… and my colleagues were like ” wow ! Isn’t he amazing!”, but I thought differently – really ?! Family?! You’re riding a private jet and I’m busting my ass 10-11 hours a day to ride a train every morning, work from home when I’m sick and I get 5% raise …fuck that kind of “family”, I better build my own…
So I prepared an escape plan and quit the rat race… It’s not easy to be free there’s plenty of hardship, but I can’t imagine going back.
Steve Cutts have made this amazing animation Short Film where he shows a perfect allegory to what it feels like being in some of the corporations.
