You Can If You Think You Can
A Workaholic according to Webster’s Dictionary and Wikipedia is:
Webster’s – One who has a compulsive and unrelenting need to work.)
Wikipedia – Workaholic is not the same as working hard. Despite logging in an extraordinary amount of hours and sacrificing their health and loved ones for their jobs, workaholics are frequently ineffective employees.
Before you begin to read I wanted to address some minor presumptions:
1. The purpose of this blog isn’t to make you feel bad for working.
2. There is a huge difference between purposeful healthy work and being a workaholic
3. If you got upset when you saw the word WORKAHOLIC… You may be one!
Purpose is a topic that can easily be misunderstood and is often overlooked because of the deceptive obvious meaning it has behind it.
I mean “Purpose” – It’s what your destined to become or what you were created to do in life!
Although purpose does mean the above mentioned, it does however have a much deeper meaning and takes soul searching to figure out and implement. For some… It happens fast… for others… takes time.
Regardless of the time frame… Remember its a marathon not a sprint. Your purpose in life is something to really take serious and ponder… We only have 1 shot at life… One shot to make a difference… One shot to leave a legacy to remember!
