If you dont like the typical workplace, why not make a dramatic career change to a dream job that does not involve corporate life? This is even more important if you also hate your job.

Fact is, you can be free of the 9 to 5 rat race if this is what you really want. Imagine, having work that you truly enjoy and not having to work for a nasty boss! Just as important, you can have your personal freedom.

Clearly, you cant be genuinely prosperous unless you have true freedom. You will have attained true freedom in this world when you can get up in the morning when you want to get up; go to sleep when you want to go to sleep; and in the interval, work and play at the things you want to work and play at – all at your own pace.

The great news is that not having a real job – and creating your own dream job instead – allows you the opportunity to attain this high degree of freedom. The freedom that millions of individuals – including me – have attained by not having a real job offers a myriad of benefits, including a relatively stress-free lifestyle. It hasn’t always been this way for me, however.

I can still vividly recall the workplace blues that I endured early in the evening every Sunday while I was an engineer so many years ago. I felt extremely stressed because of the thought that I had to go back to work on Monday morning. The anxiety started building up around noon on Sunday. This anxiety interfered with my totally enjoying anything – regardless of how special it was – for the rest of the day.

Twenty-five years after I was fired from my job as an engineer, I was not terribly surprised by an article in The Washington Post that indicated millions of workers suffer from the Sunday anxiety/workplace blues as I did so many years ago. I was a bit surprised, however, by the headline: “Dread of Sunday Night Even Afflicts People Who Like Their Work.”

The fact that even people who love their work start feeling anxious when Sunday afternoon or evening rolls around indicates that corporate life is not good for one’s health. This is just one reason that so many of us are organizationally averse and will do anything to escape corporate life.

I would suggest that you do the same. Make the great escape from corporate life as soon as you can. When Sunday evening rolls around, you won’t be stressing out about waking up early Monday morning to make the stress-filled commute to work at a stress-filled job in a stress-filled organization.

Instead, you will relax and enjoy your evening all the more. You may even have a party every Sunday evening – to celebrate the dramatic career change that you made to your dream job outside corporate life.
