Avoid Burnout

If you think that Hell does not exist, put yourself through burnout. That is what happens to workaholics. With faith in God and self-discipline you can recover and find yourself on a firmer foundation with a much more effective and successful style. How do I know? I have been through burnout twice. Be Warned.

Elaine Bailey has also survived burnout. She lists five delusions workaholics suffer from:

1. I'm keeping the boss happy
2. I'm a hero
3. I'm better than others
4. I accomplish more
5. Successful people work long hours

Elaine does a good job of explaining each item in her full article.
