A Succint Meditation on Power

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

This quote, attributed to Abraham Lincoln, kind of explains why I have never found fulfillment working in a traditional office setting. Most of us are capable of it, but if you have an artistic nature, it doesn’t usually gel with our personality or temperament.

That’s probably why employees try to express their individuality with renegade cubicle decor (http://www.google.com/search?num=10&hl=en&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1576&bih=821&q=cubicle+decoration&oq=cubicle+&gs_l=img.1.0.0l10.1520.2776.0.6916.8.7.0.1.1.0.96.631.7.7.0…0.0…1ac.1.fytAWbTzXFI#hl=en&tbo=d&site=imghp&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=cubicle+decoration+ideas&oq=cubicle+decorat&gs_l=img.1.2.0l10.25476.26005.0.28194.3.3.0.0.0.1.151.336.2j1.3.0…0.0…1c.1.sSHlFHULPug&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.41524429,d.b2I&fp=e200120e98f4ec01&biw=1576&bih=821).

Freelancing has always worked out better for me: I can work on projects that are of personal interest, that matter or have some intrinsic value. Sometimes it’s financially rewarding, sometimes not.

This article in Yahoo news only confirms that, for me, I made the right choice: (http://screen.yahoo.com/boss-might-psychopath-012020834.html).
