A note from Mark Felber
"I admire addicts. In a world where everybody is waiting for some blind, random disaster, or some sudden disease, the addict has the comfort of knowing what will most likely wait for him down the road. Hes taken some control over his ultimate fate, and his addiction keeps the cause of death from being a total surprise."
~Chuck Palahniuk

Do You Have Workaholic Habits?

There is a clear difference between enthusiastic, energetic work toward a highly valued goal and workaholism. That difference lies primarily in the emotional quality of the hours spent. Workaholism has a treadmill, joyless quality, not the bouncy, fun energy of a trampoline. And while working long, hard hours may help you accomplish a primary work goal, it likely will leave other areas of your life--family, friendship, intellectual stimulation, etc.--in shambles.

"Workaholism is an addiction," Julia Cameron says in her book, The Artist's Way, "and like all addictions, it blocks creative energy." Take the following quiz, adapted from Cameron's book, to help you figure out if you have workaholic habits. Even better, ask a few members of your family, or a few friends, to answer these questions for you. You may be surprised by what you discover.

Internet Addiction

Every day, millions of people come home from work or school, boot up their computers and enter a world we wouldn't have dreamed of twenty years ago.

They "talk" with anonymous strangers in chat rooms and news groups; "visit" museums and African plains; "kiss," "hug" and "have sex" by typing into a computer; "swim underwater" in simulated oceans.

It's a new world, all right--one in which we are confronted daily with new emotional issues, or new twists on age-old issues. These three brief vignettes illustrate some of the uncharted waters we are wading in today.

Go to full story.


Today's Quote
"We often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us."
