Happiness is just around the corner "The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat." -- Lily Tomlin

The bad thing is just that this whole system is built on the rat race - the race has to continue in order to keep the economy etc. alive. The phenomenon has been analyzed for decades, even Marx had an idea of "commodity fetishism". Jean Baudrillard wrote that it's a sort of hyperreality in which we (the western world) are living. Guy Debord wrote in 1967 that we're living in "The Society of the Spectacle". It's not too far-fetched to think something fundamental has to happen in our beliefs in order to keep this planet alive. It's not just about a few people jumping off the rat race, it's about millions (and hundreds of millions) of people doing it.

Great post. It's sad though that the majority of people really don't understand this. They believe that the rat race is the safest, therefore easiest, therefore best way to live their life. I'm always reminding of the quote: "Find a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life." Unfortunately not enough people are willing to go out of their comfort zone and chase their dream jobs. Matthew

Peter: I agree - beliefs are crucial. It's not what happens to you, but what you think about it. Steve: You mean I don't have to spend 20 years hauling in fertilizer, building bigger and bigger greenhouses - I could just bloom right now? Who knew! Marco: An "Until Script Process" - that's it exactly. I've never heard of that before, but it makes total sense. I'll have to read up on transactional analysis. Know a good place to start? Charles: I'm afraid I have no idea - I got it in an email from a friend... John: I love that - "why do we have to sacrifice for happiness if we can be happy without the sacrifice?" Right on! Jaizki: That's one of the best ways to be stuck in a situation: When you feel to busy to do something about it. Nancy: Yes. And realistically, a job that makes you happy is going to wear you down before you know it. Tantowi: Exactly!

Do what you love to do and make money with it. Most people change jobs several times in a career until they find the right one. Doing what you love is a great way to spend your working hours. Your experience in business (success or failure) is worth for your future business.

Thanks for sharing. This should be a good reminder for us that we need to be realistic in making decisions. Our job is one particular answer to our need which is money.

Most people are so busy running that they don't realize they're in a rat race.
