Workaholic: Is It That Bad?

I had to admit that sometimes, i'm being too workaholic. Sometimes i even forgot that i hadn't had my lunch or dinner when i'm working. One of the reason is that i don't like some kind of timeout when i'm doing things, since most of the time, i lost my mood when i had to do other things, for example taking someone's phone call, or doing other activities. As the result, my parents sometimes got mad at me because i am too busy with my job and sometime forget to take care of myself.

I had read a news where there's a people in China who died because he worked too hard and didn't get enough rest to recover his strength. It's very hard to believe, but it's true. I don't want to end up like that, but it's just my habit to do something until it's finished before i can take a break. That way, i can enjoy my break without any burdens.

    In Japan I think they call people who die from too much work as "Karoshi". Yes, people die from various health complications (eg. heart attack, liver, etc).

  2. Will,

    I think you must tried to reading Oda Nobunaga and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, two of three Japan unifier (another one is Tokugawa Ieyasu).

    Both Nobunaga and Hideyoshi known as popular and genius general, easy to sleep in the war without worry. Every problem must wait until we finished our rest :-).

    Although it's a good habit to finished your job before taking a rest time, you must remember that it's not a good choice due to your health.

  3. I mean, "reading Oda Nobunaga and Toyotomi Hideyoshi Biography" :-)

  4. More work for me, but good advice :D
