Start you own business.

You might still have to work alot but atleast you know you're the boss.

wow awesome man. more power to ya. you are better of doing something you love even if you make less money. and i would say doing something where you are out doors. maybe do construction work??

For me, i am stuck doing an hourly job until i get enough to buy a few acres and live off the land. It might take a while but at least there is an end in sight.

Let me ask you something- are you happier at all since you quit your job? Have you spent more time with friends and family? Or is not having a job depressing? Some people wouldn't know what to do with themselves if they didn't have a job.

God... just typing this makes me want to go travel and explore the world.

er that's still having a job, unless you're constructing for yourself.

For instance recently I've been constructing a boat and furnace out in nature.



For me, i am stuck doing an hourly job until i get enough to buy a few acres and live off the land. It might take a while but at least there is an end in sight.

There is lots of land available.
Can start by doing guerrilla gardening,
permaculture, seedball, forest-gardening.



Let me ask you something- are you happier at all since you quit your job?

yes


Have you spent more time with friends and family?

sometimes


Or is not having a job depressing?
Some people wouldn't know what to do with themselves if they didn't have a job.

That's the point of having a journal or agenda,
where you keep track of your accomplishments and goals,
can make todo lists of what to do next, and accomplish them.
Treat yourself with fruit, nuts and tea once you have accomplished.



God... just typing this makes me want to go travel and explore the world.

Yes, Seasteading is a viable option.
Can make a concrete boat, and live on the ocean,
I started with making small models and am increasing them in size.
A boat I'm working on the beach will likely be able to float at least 1 person.
At current rate in 1 or two years, will construct something we can live on part or full time.

Well to sum it up, yes and no. I am happy I left this miserable job, and I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders the minute I walked out of there.

But at the same time, its also hard looking for work, I think I may become an independent broker / business owner. Something that shows me a direct result of the work I put in.

I have spent more time with friends and fam, but you see until I get back to having a cashflow, its something that will always nag at me, even when im out having fun....does that make sense?

I totally agree with you. I work as an, well pretty much an apprentice drafter to my step-dad and although the money is good, I f*&%$ing hate it. I don't mind waking up early or anything, it is just mind numbing. I much rather be outside cultivating, hunting or exploring something. Being stuck in a cubicle from 730 am to 530-730pm is like being stuck in a box with a bunch of arrogant, fat rich, racists. I am of Earth, so why should I be so far away from it?

Don't feel like reading all these pages, but wanted to comment:
I think perhaps it's not the concept of work you find unnatural, but rather the type of work that feels unnatural.

People are conditioned to believe that in order to have a 'normal' life you get up, you find a job you don't hate or tolerate, make money to do what everyone else is doing.

Buy a house, buy a car, get the latest tech gear. Do the grind.

That's a normal existence.

You're waking up to the fact that this is not necessarily your normal.

Perhaps your normal is traveling and working as you go. Perhaps it's eschewing the 9 to 5 work day in favor of one that gets you closer to nature and seeing that the results of your labor are yours and not someone else

People don't realize that there are more possibilities out there to life and living than what we're conditioned to believe.

I'm inclined to think it's the opposite. There are LESS possibilities to life and living than what we're conditioned to believe.

Hm, that's interesting.

Here's my example, then perhaps you can share one?

I know people who work as they go and travel the world. They are experiencing some amazing things out there.
Doing it as a family nonetheless.

your turn.

If you have ever tried living off the land , you would know just how much it sucks and just how easy we have it. Is it way more stressful working at a modern job? Hell yeah , but does your life depend on the next crop? Will the heat kill my crops? Did my well dry up? Is there a draught coming?

We have it much better now.

Try being constipated when you have no laxatives.

I agree with that, however I would be happier just living of the land and working for my own survival, which in todays modern world is pretty much impossible.


Move to parts of Africa, South America, Asia or even parts of North America and live off the land. Now mind you that will be 16 hours per day, every day to do it...


Humans have never had so much free time as they do today...enjoy it.
