Workaholism and perfectionism enslave our hearts and imagination

Day 275/366 days Towards Self-Mastery.


In a world that values hard work, striving and the promise of a luxury lifestyle, workaholism and perfectionism become valued and sanctioned. Is there employer on this fine earth who doesn't value a perfectionist?


The pursuit of perfectionism breeds workaholism, and consumes us. We wear it like a badge of honour and are rewarded by the puritans who vehemently believe that God's grace is achieved through back-breaking work, grinding self-discipline and demanding struggle. Thank you Sarah for this fine description.


Well, that's one worldview that I discovered enslaved me.
