Here’s a counterintuitive idea: The number of hours you work doesn’t say anything about whether or not you are a workaholic.
It’s a weird statement, right? Isn’t “working too much” the definition of workaholism? Well… maybe not.
Some psychologists believe that working a lot isn’t always unhealthy. They make a distinction between pathological “work craving” and meaningful “work engagement.” I explain the empirical difference between the two work styles in my latest post for Cafe.
