What if you had a heart attack, but instead of calling your spouse or partner to get medical attention, your first thought was, “I need to meet with my manager tomorrow; this isn’t convenient?”
This is precisely what Jonathan Frostick, an IT lead at HSBC, experienced and explained in a LinkedIn post that went viral. A post that caught the eye of Sarah Green Carmichael, an editor with Bloomberg, and she needed to know more about why someone would think about a meeting before calling for medical help.
During our conversation, Sarah shares tactics on reducing workaholism from learning how to embrace trade-offs to developing other identities outside of our work/careers.
In the spirit of taking some time off this holiday weekend, please re-enjoy my conversation with Sarah Green Carmichael, editor at Bloomberg LP about how to tame your inner workaholism.
