Cubicle Psychology: The Drone Syndrome

The Drone Syndrome is a temporary mental ailment experience by many cubicle dwellers. It's particularly acute after holidays such as Thanksgiving, when we have free time to spend with the ones that we love -- it's during times like these we feel most like ourselves: our individual selves. Returning to work in a cubicle can be traumatic as we're forced, once again, to seamlessly integrate ourselves into the corporate mission statement and its drab work environment. So good luck this week everyone! It's a tough one. But keep in mind the winter holidays are right around the corner.

No, dear friend, we are not forced. No one is forced to rot away in a cubicle: It's solely our choice to become corporate drones trapped in a cubicle nightmare.

It took me a while to realize this is merely an illusion and mass brainwashing. There are loads of options out there to free yourself from the cubicle. You can start a coaching business (Pamela Slim, Escape From The Cubicle Nation),start any otherkind of business while outsourcing the bulk of the work (Tim Ferriss, The Four Hour Workweek) or create online passive income (google smart passive income blog by Pat Flynn).


The options are there. Just stop brainwashing yourself that rotting away in a cubicle is the only choice you have.
