Reflecting about how at least two REHP posters (rkmacdonald & me) were abruptly laid-off this week got me to thinking about a couple of books I read called "Die Broke" and "Live Rich" by Stephen Pollan.While a budding ER would ignore some of the advice given in these books--for example, he advocates that you don't retire-I do think that his ideas about "quitting in your head" are pretty interesting.He believes that you should think of yourself as a free agent even if you are an employee. He even encourages you to setup your work environment to look like you are there on a temporary basis. This may seem a minor detail, but I really do think that it does help you to make the mind-shift. So, I decided to setup my cubicle just like it was a temporary workstation--no photos, momentos, posters, etc. Just the basics for what I needed to get my work done. So, when it came time this week for me to pack up my personal belongings and be marched out the door--I was able to pack up everything into one box.
