Work-Life Balance is Overrated: Think Twice Before Dubbing People "Workaholics"

Many people who work long hours are more accurately described as "hard workers" or even "heroic" rather than "workaholics."  I make that case in my article today. 

HERE is the link.

Research starting some 20 years ago and continuing today shows that "workaholics" are not generally any more productive than those who work fewer hours (but still full time). In other words, the guy who voluntarily works 80 hours a week—meaning he doesn't absolutely have to be there for other reasons—is accomplishing only about what his colleague who works 40–50 hours is doing. Food for thought.

I don't know about averages but the people I know, including me, who work much more than 50 hours a week DO absolutely accomplish much more.
