When Work Addiction is the Company Culture

The pandemic, WFH and the Great Reshuffle threw even more people into working long hours.

If your company downsized, you're probably hustling to pick up the slack, exhausted and hoping you're not next.

It's not worth it.

As an over-achieving executive, I nearly lost my battle with work addiction.

Ten years ago, I left my job as Managing Director for a mobile technology PR firm.

I gave up that corner office because I was afraid that if I stayed, I would have a heart attack.

I'm not saying to quit your job like I did.

That was my solution.

But, you do need to find solutions that work for you.

You might negotiate your current employment terms.

Or confront your false beliefs about money and your value.

Say ‘No' or push back more often to non-essentials with colleagues.

or utilize and/or invest in free or cheap software to automate tasks.

No matter your situation, don't wait until the stroke or heart attack changes your life for you.

What's the first step you're taking to cut the long hours?
