    Should I blame my Profession as IT?

    Locked

    by cachifox ·

    Some time I hate to think,
    I hate my self
    and I hate my Profession as IT

    My mind is almost full of codes I could not even think to eat or go to the tiolet for a urine and I don’t even want to sleep just to finish my project.

    I don’t know what to do, Who should I need to blame?

      Blame your Doctor

      For not putting you on the right medication. Sounds like a case of obsessive-compulsive disorder to me. The IT business seems to be a magnet for people with OCD. That’s how I survive in this business. My users think I’m some kind of Goddess because I don’t stop until the problem is solved. In reality, I’m too darned obsessive to give up. But, of course, I’m probably the only one, eh?

      Then you can still write code when you go to the toilet.

      Don’t look for blame…

      Look for change. You probably got into IT because you like to tinker with computers or software on your own. Very often, taking a job related to your hobby is a mistake.

      Start planning an exit strategy, and get yourself out of IT. That’s what I’m presently doing.

      Hi,

      Maybe time to take a long vaca! I know how you feel, I guess the finer details of IT have a way sticking with you, if you know what I mean. I’ve been on projects, where for a period of time I dream about problems, politics, and solutions… it’s really not a healthy scenario =). Somtimes when you are so far into the details and you’re dealing with company politics, it can get to ya; while this is quite normal in stressful situations, it’s not healthy.

      You really should have a work-life balance, which means you’re not stressing about work when U R at home. It sounds like a good time to save some money, build up your savings and start considering another line of work…

      Good luck to you. Since you’re a CIO you probably shoudn’t have to get too far into the details… start relying on your experts and relax. And don’t hate yourself, life is to short man!

      I leave you with this final quote:

      “When your job seems overwhelming and poltical, remember – everyone has an ass to kiss!”.
