There are people who pride themselves in drowning themseleves in work, a fair percentage of which can just as well be handled by others. In doing so, they create tensions for themselves which over a period of time have a telling effect on their state of physical and mental well-being. I know a secreatry to a famous builder who just latched on to whatever work came his way and insisted on doing it himself, even though there were two other secretaries, who didn't have enough work even for half a day. It was only after he came down with serious gastric problems that he learnt a lesson.
