"It's Time to Stop Glorifying Workaholism"
The old saying is true — no one ever died wishing that they had spent more time at work. What most people do wish is that they had spent more time with the people they love. I remember one client who tole me through tears, “I never knew my father because he was always at work.”
It’s also no myth that workaholism can kill you. In fact, the Japanese have a word for it, Karōshi, which literally translates to death by overwork. A Japanese poll found that one out of every five Japanese workers face the risk of death by overwork. This is also a serious problem in the U.S., and employers are beginning to pay attention as they realize that overwork produces negative outcomes for businesses. It’s becoming clearer every day that workaholism is nothing to brag about.
