Workaholics beware: You’re not such heroes
You’re a workaholic—so you think you’re a priceless asset to your boss. But many bigwigs prefer pros who can balance their work and personal lives. If they fear you’re a burnout candidate, they may frown on your work addiction. Rather than stay late or routinely lug work home, prioritize more ruthlessly and delegate more aggressively. Show the boss you can produce excellent results quickly. How? Train staffers to handle pieces of your job. Avoid time-sapping meetings. Propose processes that boost efficiency.
