There can be a fine line between being enthusiastic about your work and being overly involved in your work. In fact, knowing the difference is difficult. It's not always clear. This is because our culture often encourages people to work as hard as they can and often rewards people who put in a lot of extra time and effort. When taken too far, this may become unhealthy. Keeping a good balance between work and home life is important for mental and physical health, as well as for productivity.
This assessment can help you determine the truth about your work pattern. Does it reflect a healthy eagerness and interest or an unhealthy obsession? Take the assessment to find out if you are overly involved with work and learn tips that can help you change. Maybe it will inspire you to strike a better balance between home and work. It may also help you learn how to relax and enjoy life more.
