In life we set off one direction dreaming of a top notch job, and the lifestyle it brings…but we end another.
I always wanted to be a journalist coz I saw them flying all over the world to collect the hottest news. But then I grew up and realized they were working for someone else and were only flying to destinations they were sent to and to do the task not holidaying. It was still a job.
So I took teaching instead. But it was still a job. I wanted my freedom to do and be whatever I wanted wherever.
I badly wanted my 4 freedoms:
What I ended up with was like slavery.
Trading my time, effort and talent for money never led to financial freedom, without it there is no Inner freedom and definitely not time or location freedom.
When you have a job, you typically are told what to do. Someone at one point or another wrote the call script for your life, and all you have to do is follow along until the clock hits 4.30, and then it’s happy hour.
Did you know that we didn’t always have jobs?
Seth Godin likes to bring up this little fact in his Linchpin sessions: at the first factories they literally had men pushing carts of gin back and forth on the factory floor. People were so unaccustomed to working for hours straight that their owners had to keep them drunk all day in order to keep them happy enough to continue to do a good day’s work.
In his article "27 Reasons Why You Should Never Have a Job"
Everett Bogue of "farbeyondthestars.com" says that,
Being self-employed isn’t easy, but it is rewarding.
Gradually we’ve trained a workforce that’s a little more into the idea of working long hours, so the gin carts are now mostly unnecessary –though I’ve known plenty of colleagues who kept bottles of whiskey in their desk drawers just to stay sane when they had to stay late".
Here are his 27 reasons. You can read the details at his blog.
