I recently ran across this article that spelled out the amount of hours spent in a cubicle for the average hourly worker. As I read the article, I realized three things:
1. Holy Crap- There has to be a way out.
2. I don’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of my life on a haze of cloudy mind numbing work.
3. I have to figure out a way out.
Here is the chart Mr. 1500 posted in his article called Normal Sucks.
48 weeks * 40 hours * 40 years = 76,800 hours
In. A. Cube.
This resonated with me! I am this person. The person that does the same thing everyday, the person that faithfully goes to work and does the same thing every month. The person who wants to change and be independent, free from worry and the ” normal” life.
I read and have read financial blogs and traveling blogs for years. Dreamed about being them. Well, today, starting today, this blog and another blog on finance will be my way out. I have 16 years of financial expertice, I have a Masters degree in Leadership. There is no reason I can’t prevail.
Decision make. Thank you www.1500days.com
You have made my decision.
