We all work hard to make a living. But what is life without personal happiness? We have friends and families to guide us through tough decisions and offer the support we need. But focusing too much on personal relationships can affect our work goals. On the other hand, ignoring our personal life by adopting a workaholic mindset–where we shut out distractions, including people, to remain permanently on-call–can result in a miserable career that affects productivity, which is the entire reason for working hard in the first place.
