“Are You A True Blue Workaholic?”
April 1, 2017 12:42pm CST
Most of us tend to be workaholic because we aim for something in our lives. I have a friend who is a true blue workaholic. She spends more than twelve hours teaching students online. For me, I think it is fine since I do it each day. The only difference, she works for the whole week every month. The bottom line, she never had rest day lately. I even call her attention to slow a bit. But she refused to do so and doesn’t need to slow down. Image Credit: pixabay.com

Hell no, maybe it is just because never found something I loved to do. 8 and done for me. My brother loves what he is doing now Streams video game sessions for about 12 hours a day. Once he did 20 hours straight, but started making him physically sick. He cut back to 8, still said he was feeling mentally exhausted. Tried to cut back again, but never really see him do less than 7 hours. That was for like 2 days and then he was back up to 9 or 12 because he wanted more money, which was no guarantee because he gets paid in donations. He was just out for a whole week. Nah, not playing corporate America's greed game whether I love the work or not. People need rest and they do a better job overall when they can think straight.
I do think it is not good to work more than the regular working hours. I guess some people are used to work long hours. But I can't do it. As you have said, I can't think straight for being exhausted. If I am in desperation, I will also work more or less 12 hours per day.
I was workaholic for almost 40 years ... When I look back now, I still could not believe that I was able to do with only 3 hours of sleep every night .. Although I am benefiting financial security now, I went through a couple of years of anxiety .. But I am okay now .. We really need to learn how to balance our work and think of our well being ..
Wow! I think it is worth to do hard work. I never thought that it is possible to sleep for 3 hours in a day. I haven't tried that yet. But I am open to it. If we wanted to be financially stable, then I can work the way you do. It is also a good thing that you had balanced your life during that time.
