Working In An Office Is Destroying My Soul

It has been nearly 10 months since I stepped into an office environment for the first time in my life.

I had consciously avoided working in offices for the first 27 years of my life for one particular reason.

I am not compatible with an office job.

My working life has revolved around jobs that require movement. I thrive on physical jobs, where I can problem solve and think on my feet. There is something about movement which induces creativity and happiness inside of me.

My previous jobs while living in different countries involved landscape gardening, pipe-laying and teaching English as a foreign language.

All of these jobs required movement and physical activity. If you’ve taught kids before, you’ll know what I mean. They are a handful!

Working in an office seemed akin to prison for me. Sat in a chair for 8 hours a day staring at a screen, doing work that is neither stimulating nor truly important.

It was my idea of hell. Yet, I still took the job, and ten months later I am nearing the end of my time.

Normally, expectations do not correspond with reality. I was half-expecting the same with working in an office. On the contrary, I have found the inverse to be true.

My expectations were met and then some!

Office Job

In 100 years we have gone from a minimal number of office jobs, to a large portion of the workforce working in offices.

This is a phenomenal shift in a short space of time. 100 years may seem like a long time, but when you consider the previous 1000 years saw little change in the working conditions of people, you realise how big a change this is.

Working in an office has become the norm. In fact, it is what some of us aspire to do.

They are seen as safe, secure jobs. If you keep your head down and work hard, you can rise the greasy pole to the top.

Yet, how many of us truly enjoy going into an office on a Monday morning?

I struggle to believe more than 5% of the office working population, truly, thoroughly, and unequivocally enjoy going into an office 5 days a week.

For me, working in an office is a mundane experience.

You go through the same routines day after day. There is very little change to that routine.

It’s easy to go into auto-pilot mode and switch off, while you’re doing your work. I have very little need to engage my brain and think through issues while I am there.

For jobs that have been held up as ones we should aspire to, they are remarkably boring and insignificant.

The monotonous nature of the job is soul-destroying. There is a simple reason for this.

The human body was not designed to sit in an office for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week!

Whenever I look around, I see people that are out of shape, overweight. They look tired.

Why do we keep putting ourselves through this day after day, if it is making us feel this way?

There are people that have worked at my office for over 20 years, I have only been on this Earth for 28 years. The thought of working in an office for that long makes me feel ill.

I don’t know how they do it.

Escape Plan

I think the main reason people find themselves stuck in offices when they don’t want to be, is a lack of an exit strategy.

If you don’t have one, it’s too much of a risk to cut loose and try to find another job.

You need to have your strategy fully formed while you’re working there, before you can leave.

While a job is never secure, having a job is better than not having one. You have to pay bills, and working in an office facilitates that. Why else would anyone choose to go to one?

Luckily, I have my exit strategy in place. I am going self-employed with my blog in the next few months.

The experience of working in an office has taught me many things. One is that you have to have an idea of where you want to head, otherwise you will find yourself going somewhere you never intended.

It’s easy to let life take the reins, but you have to take control of your own life. If you don’t like working in an office, do something about it!

Sitting there complaining and wishing for something different, isn’t going to change anything.

The only thing that will is taking action!

In some ways, I only have myself to blame. I got myself into this mess. If I had been more careful with finances, and had a better plan earlier on, I would not have needed to work in an office.

I knew going into this experience, and I was right. Perhaps, it was a good thing.

While the experience may have been brief and unfulfilling, at least I know it’s something I never want to do again.

That is motivation enough to ensure that I give my own business 100% of my attention and 100% effort.

Working in an office may be destroying my soul, but it is also fuelling my desire to make my business a success.

There is no better motivator than never stepping foot inside one again!

I’ll keep that in mind tomorrow, when I’m at my desk!

Business English practice: Unit 2 — Ways of Working

  • Read through the explanations.
    • A | Old and new ways

    • I’m an office worker in an insurance company. It’s a nine-to-five job with regular working hours. The work isn’t very interesting, but I like to be able to go home at a reasonable time.

    • We all have to clock in and clock out every day. In this company, even the managers have to, which is unusual!
    Note: You also say clock on and clock off.

    • I’m in computer programming. There’s a system of flexitime in my company, which means we can work when we want, within certain limits. We can start at any time before eleven, and finish as early as three, as long as we do enough hours each month. It’s ideal for me as I have two young children.

    • I work in a car plant. I work in shifts. I may be on the day shift one week and the night shift the next week. It’s difficult changing from one shift to another. When I change shifts, I have problems changing to a new routine for sleeping and eating.

    • I’m a commercial artist in an advertising agency. I work in a big city, but I prefer living in the country, so I commute to work every day, like thousands of other commuters. Working from home using a computer and the Internet is becoming more and more popular, and the agency is introducing this: it’s called teleworking or telecommuting. But I like going into the office and working with other people around me.

    B | Nice work if you can get it

    All these words are used in front of ‘job’ and ‘work’:

    satisfying, stimulating, fascinating, exciting: the work is interesting and gives you positive feelings

    dull, boring, uninteresting, unstimulating: the work is not interesting

    repetitive, routine: the work involves doing the same things again and again

    tiring, tough, hard, demanding: the work is difficult and makes you tired.

    C | Nature of work

  • Fill the gaps in the sentences below. Use A opposite.
    • I’m an in an insurance company. It’s a with regular .
    • We all have to and every day.
    • I’m in computer programming. There’s a system of in my company, which means we can work when we want, within certain limits.
    • I work in a car plant. I work . I may be on the one week and the the next week.
    • using a computer and the Internet is becoming more and more popular, and the agency is introducing this: it’s called or .
  • Which person is most likely to do each of the five things?
    • A software designer in an Internet company. Has to be in the office.
      • telecommute
      • clock on and off at the same time every day

    Yes. «In the office» is relatively common.

    I will be in the office all day.
    There is a lot going on in the office.
    They rearranged the cubicles in the office.

    The only time I expect to see «at office» is when it is part of a phrase:

    at office parties
    good at office politics
    sale at Office Depot

    Re: in the office / at office

    Hello again,
    I have completely understood these usages:
    In office = an important position with power in government.
    In an office = a building where you work in.
    In your office = a building where you work in.
    in the office = a building where you work in.
    at the office = at work & general location

    I remember some of native English speakers told me that they have never seen the usage of «at an office»
    But on the Internet in one of the web pages I encountered it.
    This is the link: http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2013/. fice-near-you/

    10 Reasons Working in an Office is Awful(ly Awesome)

    by Staff Editor March 8, 2012, 1:54 pm 8.6k Views

    There are fewer symbols of crushing defeat more overwhelming than a dimly-lit office with uncomfortable chairs, buzzing neon lights, and lifeless drones of workers staring at you with their dead little eyes. Offices are where dreams go to die and your ambitions of becoming a tortured writer or international starship captain wither and fade beneath budgets, reports, memos and annoying office politics. We’ve seen it before in movies and TV shows; the business office has got to be one of the worst places in the world, finishing just above Hell and being stuck listening to your girlfriend talk about how intuitive her cats are.

    But many offices drones actually find their jobs quite fulfilling, and have many positive reasons not to hate their lives — which makes sense when you think about it. If we all had to work for Bill Lumberg or David Brent, the suicide/snarky quotes rate in this country would be astronomically high. So before you go running off to join a commune and become one with nature, perhaps its worth considering all the reasons working in an office can be really awesome.

    It’s Very Hard to Self-Motivate

    Why the Office is Awful:
    It may seem like it’d be a lot easier to get your work done, your spreadsheets formatted, your Gibson hacked each day if you didn’t have the host of difficulties that come with working from an office. First off, you’d be saving a good hour and a half off the bat in commute time by working from home. Plus, lunch is in the room next door, it’s cheap and likely healthier than anything else. You don’t have to worry about meandering bosses or coworkers cornering you for pointless discussions about teamwork and pictures of their children/pets. By telecommuting, your 8-hour day just easily became a 10 hour day!

    Why it’s Not That Bad:
    Let’s be honest with ourselves. Some of us are so easily distracted, and when the video games are right there it’s so easy to convince ourselves just a few minutes of Battlefield 3 would really clear our heads. Then we can get down to work. But, you know, after that we could really use a bowl of macaroni and a fresh pot of coffee—just to steel the gut and the nerves for the day ahead. Before you know it, it’s 3pm and you’ve got virtually no work done (but your Kill/Death rate is amazing).

    It’s such a problem that basically any business literature on the subject of allowing workers to telecommute begins with the same phrase: “Make sure they are good self-motivators.” If we’re surrounded by work and people working, we will work more. If we are surrounded by video games, junk food and porn that’s just a click away, we will not. While it may be better for your short-term fulfillment to work from home, working in an office can be very beneficial to your long-term prospects.

    You’re Surrounded by Capable People and Their Ideas

    Why the Office is Awful:
    We’ve all worked under the boss who seemed to have no idea what the team was working on, nor did he or she particularly care, as long as they could pat everyone on the head and go back to playing Farmville. And we’ve all been stuck on that team full of people who refuse to carry their weight and seem intent on coasting to a partner position.

    Why it’s Not That Bad:
    Despite the fact that you many us think many of your coworkers are borderline incompetent and your boss couldn’t tell a spreadsheet from a crossword, any office you work at has employed a group of people who are at least halfway decent at their jobs. Even if your coworkers are less intelligent and capable than you, they can still offer valuable insights and perspectives on problems you might never have considered—not to mention the back-and-forth that results from this kind of interaction.
    “So what?” you may say. Why can’t you work from home and just hold regular conference calls to bat around ideas? You’re falling prey to what can playfully be dubbed The Shower Fallacy. Even though we all think that our best ideas come when we’re intensely thinking about a problem, the truth is, some of the best insights come when your mind is left free to wander, making free-form connections that it might not have made when trapped in the cage of “How do we increase productivity 5%?”.

    In other words, sometimes the best brainstorming sessions come during those periods where you aren’t brainstorming—over lunch, during a casual conversation, or when you’re taking a shower. If your only interaction with coworkers — or more generally people in your field — is during preset meetings rather than over the multitude of interactions an office produces, odds are you aren’t getting the best input. But speaking of free time…

    A Reasonable Commute Can be Beneficial

    Why the Office is Awful:
    One of the pleasures of not working in an office is the lack of commute (assuming you work from home). Honestly, who misses the long drives, the endless traffic, the death-defying balancing act of coffee, McMuffin and makeup? It’s easy to look at the average of 46 minutes spent getting to and from work as dead weight loss — it’s time you could spend on yourself if you were free, and time you could be working if you were at the office.

    Why it’s Not That Bad:
    But a short commute that doesn’t suck up too much time—and especially if it’s on public transit so you don’t have to focus on the road—can actually be something of a boon. Similar to how your best ideas come in the shower, a short commute takes you away from all distractions, and plops you down in an environment where you’re free to think about what you like, but because you’re just about to work your thoughts tend to orbit around work topics like a solar system. It’s a time to psyche yourself up for the day ahead, to put your priorities in order, to put that final flourish on that key presentation. Without it, you could be jumping in to an Iron Man competition without bothering to stretch.

    Free Stuff

    Why the Office is Awful:
    Enough high-minded musings about proper states of mind and office synergy; let’s start talking about things that get us through the day-to-day. One of the unfortunate things about working in an office is that it’s not your home. If you spill coffee on your shirt, congratulations! Now you’ll be mocked for that all day long. Forget to pack a lunch? Guess you’re spending a good $8.99 on a decent sandwich. Want to do something after work? Guess you gotta go home and change into shoes that don’t make your feet bleed.

    Why it’s Not That Bad:
    While you may not have access to all your awesome stuff and the awesome things, you do have access to a lot of stuff designed to make your life easier. And the best part is that someone else is paying for it. Let’s add up the free coffee, free meals, free toys — and if you’re lucky—free car, free travel, free access to proprietary databases and software, free photocopies you can use to promote your band. All of these things can add up to huge savings in the long run (especially if you really like office Nerf wars).

    You Aren’t as Trapped as You Once Were

    Why the Office is Awful:
    One of the most universally-agreed upon bad things about working in an office is an inability to take a 15 minute nap at 2:30. Anyone who’s snuck off to the break room and furtively napped for a few minutes can attest to how even a short nap can reinvigorate you and help you get through till 5. On top of that, a full 40 hours of each week (at the very least) are required to be spent in an office—taking valuable hours away from hanging out with friends and generally faffing about watching Futurama reruns. No matter how much work you do or don’t have, you aren’t the one who sets your schedule. The most efficient worker still can’t leave before 5pm without getting suspicious looks.
