                                          "Workaholic" Doesn't Sell on a Resume
                                                           By Allen Voivod

    Yes, yes, all work and no play makes Jack and Jill a dull boy and girl.

I'm not telling you anything you haven't heard before - but the four most dangerous words in the
English language are, "I already know that." So give a listen one more time - it might sink in better than
it ever has before.

No one ever tells you, the executive, manager, or C-level professional to work FASTER, right?
Smarter, sure. Harder, yes. Faster? No way.

In fact, when it comes to speed, the only advice anyone gets or gives these days - in business and in
life - is to slow down. Take a breather. Get clear. Savor a moment.

But if everyone tells us to slow down and take a break, why do we always ignore the advice?

Because we think we don't have the time to stop - but we never do, and we never will, unless we make
the time.

Here's the counter-intuitive truth: Slowing down actually makes you more productive.

When you work yourself silly, you don't give yourself a chance to recharge your body, your mind, or
even your emotional batteries. And do you think you're a smooth-running executive engine when you're
running on fumes? Of course not.

Whether it's a simple 10-minute disconnected walk around the block, a so-called "mental health" day
off, or a good chunk of the vacation time you've had banked for multiple years, step away from the
mouse and keyboard, and give your brain a chance to relax.

It's especially important for you as an executive or manager to break the workaholic habit. If you're
setting up unrealistic expectations for yourself, you're also setting your subordinates up for failure -
they'll try to model your work habits, and they'll melt down faster than you will. And don't forget the old
saw - if you're working too hard, then maybe you're not delegating very well.

Do yourself - and everyone around you - a great favor, and break the habit now, before you get the
next executive position. Set yourself up for success.

Besides, life and business are only going to get faster.

And if you're thinking about a job change right now - if you've already started the process with a
headhunter or a recruiter, written your resume, or even sent it out by hand or with a distribution service
- then now's a fabulous time to take a breather, to check in with your goals and make sure you're still
on the right path.

Could You Be A Workaholic? by David Leonhardt

Could You Be A Workaholic?
By David Leonhardt

If you need to put on boots and grab a lap-top computer to relieve yourself at night, you might be a
redneck workaholic.

It never crossed my mind that there could be such a thing as a redneck workaholic, until I read a
column on “Are you a workaholic?”

“Did you read this?" I asked my wife. "Are you a workaholic? It looks just like those
you-might-be-a-redneck jokes.”

My wife studied the page. “Maybe it was written by a redneck alcoholic.” She suggested.

“Workaholic, not alcoholic.”

“How do you know the writer is not an alcoholic?” she demanded.

“I don’t. But the column is about workaholics, and it reads just like a series of redneck jokes.”

“Well, maybe it was written by a redneck workaholic, then.” She suggested.

“No way. There is no such a thing.”

“Why not?” she wanted to know.

“Because workaholics sit late in front of computer screens and steroid-laced in-boxes, wearing $500
suits and $550 haircuts. Folks out here wear $19.95 jeans and occasionally wash their hair.”

“But many of them do spend late hours in front of their computers,” my wife pointed out.

“Like who?”

“Like you.”

“Oh, yeah…”

“Being a workaholic is not just about computers and offices and taking out a mortgage for a haircut,”
she added. “Look at Buster.”

“Sure, every time he’s set to retire, he goes and buys another machine,” she pointed out. “One year it
was a backhoe. Another it was a dump truck.”

“Wow, he must be desperate this year.”

“Why?” my wife asked.

“Because this year he bought a whole combine…”

“Ooh, that does sound desperate.”

“…plus a farm to use it on!”

“See?” my wife smiled. “You don’t have to live in the city to be a workaholic. There can be such a thing
as a workaholic redneck.

“That’s a pity. Being a workaholic means missing out on a lot of life.”

“That’s true, but it’s not just city folk who miss their kids growing up or are too busy working to help
their wives clean the dishes.”

I took the hint and picked up a drying cloth. “You mean that anyone can get caught up in work, and
lose sight of what’s really important? Even farmers, moat diggers and the guy who sorts through the
trash at the dump looking for the tastiest morsels to throw to the gulls?”

“I suppose so,” she answered with that what-have-you-been-smoking look on her face. "Why not try to
see if workaholic redneck jokes work?"

“Well, if you look forward to Christmas this year, because you might take the afternoon off from tilling
the land, you might be a workaholic redneck.”

“That’s the spirit,” she encouraged.

I tried another, “If you’re drinking your morning coffee from a dirty mason jar from yesterday, you might
be a workaholic redneck.”

“Very good,” she praised.

“If you stick family pictures to your backhoe window to remind you what they look like, you might be a
workaholic redneck.”

“Why not try one more, just to make sure?” my wife suggested.

“OK, if you bring your work with you to your son’s baseball game, you might be a workaholic redneck.”

“Uh, OK…” she began.

“And if nobody complains about the smell, you might live in a town full of workaholic rednecks!”

"You got it!" she shouted.

I realized that I had spent way too much time talking about workaholic redneck jokes. There was only
one thing I could do to compensate.

I tossed aside the drying cloth, grabbed my lap-top computer and rushed to the outhouse to catch up
on a few hundred urgent emails.
