Many people are workaholic, so we can call this a lifestyle. Basically, people who are addicted to work, who are working every day and enjoy in this are workaholic. If you think that high performers and workaholic are the same, you are wrong. High performers know their value and workaholic allows others to determine their value. The second difference is that, high performers give 100% at any time, and workaholic give 110% at any time! This can be really hard, and cannot be done by everyone. If you work a lot but don’t take an initiative and you are always busy, I am afraid that you are workaholic.
Living life like this has positive and negative sides. Being workaholic you can provide a good future for you. You will have a great apartment, great car and any gadget you want. You will have progress with your career, and some day you can become boss. But, living your life like this has serious drawbacks. Of course, workaholics don’t believe these are drawbacks. If you don’t think these are drawbacks too, maybe you are a workaholic, but you don’t know! People who are workaholic, don’t have time for family, they even don’t have time for a serious relationship. So try to think like this. What is the purpose of having a 7 bedroom apartment and a Ferrari, when you don’t have anyone to share that with! These people don’t have children, so this lifestyle is even worse! I think that the point of any lifestyle you choose is to provide you everything you like. But, it should provide you interesting things, not more work, so I don’t really understand these people!
