Hello and welcome to Surviving the Cubicle.
Like most people who work in dull office settings, I dream of quitting my job and opening a small business, traveling the world, and writing a novel. There are tons of great blogs by people who have done this. Some day this will be a reality for me, but not quite yet.
Most of us aren’t ready to quit our boring office job yet. We have mortgages, families, student loans, credit card debt, and other things tying us down. Maybe we have the great business idea, but just need to save up some cash first. We may want to go back to school or move out of the country. Whatever it is, it’s frustrating to spend 40 or more hours a week doing something we aren’t interested in.
I started writing “Surviving the Cubicle” to help myself and others cope with the daily grind of working in an office. I’m coming up with lots of ideas on how to make working in an office more enjoyable. I’ll also take reader suggestions for topics, so email or comment if you have an idea.
The blog is directed at the average office worker/cubicle drone, but you don’t have to be one to understand the boredom that comes from spending 1/3 of your life doing something you aren’t very enthusiastic about.
Maybe you work in an office and love it. Great, this blog will still apply because it’s all about making working in an office as enjoyable as possible.
I know this has been a pretty cheesy opening post, but I didn’t know how else to start.
