Workaholics are not really workaholics.
It’s never work, which the so-called workaholic is addicted to. Instead, they’re hooked on the feelings that come from doing something they love. That passion and joy is what inspires them all day, every day.
When you do something you love, it’s natural to want to keep doing it.
- It’s why Nile Rodgers still creates and performs.
- It’s why Arnold Schwarzenegger is still making movies.
- It’s why Bill Gates is still making a difference.
Conversely, someone who finds their work frustrating, boring or stressful, pays to go on vacation… to get away from work. They spend a tiny amount of time each year, doing what they love. They have the equation completely the wrong way around.
No one is addicted to meaningless workIf you get paid for doing what you love, you may be a passion-aholic. You could be a joy-aholic or even a pleasure-aholic. But you’re not a workaholic. No one is addicted to working, just for the sake of work.
- Work without meaning is a way to pay the bills.
- Work without meaning is empty.
- Work without meaning leaves you doing things you don’t want to do, for the majority of your adult life.
Become a passion-aholic. Find what you love and make that your “work”. Transform your business from something you work in, to something that fills you with joy and passion… every day.
