allocatorx -

I used to have performance anxiety at work and it drove me nuts at times.

It was eliminated after I built a decent sized nest egg. Once I knew I could survive without a job for quite some time, I really didn't worry about performance on the job anymore. Ironically, that only served to elevate my performance in the eyes of management - go figure!

I don't mind working toward other people's goals as long as they seem logical. Unfortunately, my experience in corporate America has shown that many goals are illogical.

The lack of logic stopped getting to me after I removed myself mentally and emotionally from the culture and began to see myself for what I really was: an independent contractor masquerading as an employee.
