What Is Your Work-Life Balance?
My father was the hardest working person I’ve ever known.
Thankfully, he’s semi-retired now otherwise he may have just worked himself to death. Believe it or not, death by overworking is a real phenomenon in Japan where it is known as Karoshi, South Korea where it is called Gwarosa, and in China where it known as Guolaosi.
A strong work ethic is something that can propel you to great wealth. But it can also come with a great cost too. Overworking can wreck relationships, health and sleep habits in a hurry.
What Is Your Own Work-Life Balance?
“A recent study by Family Living Today and Now Sourcing uncovered surprising stats about work-life balance across the country. Right now, the United States ranks 30th out of 38 countries who have positive work-life balance. Maybe that’s because, according to the research, more than 11 percent of American workers say they work 50 or more hours a week. In fact, many people (33 percent) even find themselves working weekends or holidays too.”*
