When it's all added up, for many of us, our work is our life--at least in the time and attention we devote to it. Is that bad? The answer to that depends on our needs and our attitude. Even though the amount of time we work can reflect a good or bad attitude toward work, the real issue is not the hours we put in but the reasons for our actions and the kind of people we are on the job.
A catch phrase from the movie, The Final Season:
"Work to live and not live to work!"
