On the seventh day, even God rested.
But for workaholics, the day of rest never comes. There is always one more email to read, one more phone call to take, one more critically important trip to the office that can’t wait until Monday.
Weekends? Holidays? Family? As the uber-workaholic Ebenezer Scrooge put it, "Bah, humbug!
Five Signals of Workaholics
Preoccupation with work: “Workaholics typically have difficulty leaving the office while home or in social situations and are unable to “turn work off”.
Discomfort in delegating: “Many workaholics are poor delegators because of their need to control.”
Neglect other aspects of their life: “Often workaholics put work before their families and personal lives.”
Merge other parts of their lives into work: “Because work is constantly on the brain, workaholics may try to create businesses based on their hobbies. There is no demarcation between leisure and work for a workaholic.”
‘Sneaking’ work: “Workaholics, like other addicts, when confronted about their addiction, often try to hide it. Years ago, a big briefcase was difficult to hide, but today smart phones can let people practically hide their cubicles in their pockets.”
