Striking a balance between Happiness and Work

"I am YOUNG and I am a Workaholic"

“I am YOUNG and I am a WORKAHOLIC”

I am going to post a series of links and reads from here on for workaholics like me. I am a young designer and already so addicted to work that I have got everything in 6 months that other employees took years to achieve. An enviable job title, appreciation of the top guns, salary raise, heading a major project line. And what’s my age? 23! Do I have any reason to complain? Ideally, no. But when I think about my life other than work….it seems pretty much empty! I am so engrossed in work, work and  more work that I forget that instead I could be having a life as well! It seems like too much efforts to make plans for even an evening out! I always think “God! I have so much left…I definitely can’t go out for that drink….that movie….that shopping spree….that fill in the blank!” And before I know it….I would have worked here for ages and gotten comfortable with all of its discomforts. I have finally realised…no matter hoe much you love your work….it’s just that! It’s just work! There’s no point giving up other aspects of your life. There’s only one life and soooo much to see, explore and experience! My office moods should not reflect on my after work time nor my weekends nor my vacations. And how to do that? Cuz trust me….only a workaholic knows how difficult it is to let go of this addiction. So here is some stuff that my set your min din the right track!
