Workaholism Is Stupid


Monday, December 12, 2022


Ray Edwards

There's a romantic image of the hard-working entrepreneur, bleary-eyed, sleeves rolled up, in the office late at night all by himself… “burning the midnight oil”.

We buy into these images, don't we?

The problem is, they're founded on lies. The lie says that if you want to succeed, you have to sacrifice your free time, your personal life, your values.

That's why so many workaholics end up divorced, addicted, broke, and sick.

Workaholism is not romantic; it's stupid. That's true whether you're a CEO, a freelancer, or in ministry.

Let a word to the wise be sufficient.
