Workaholic: A workaholic is a person who is addicted to work. While the term generally implies that the person enjoys their work, it can also imply that they simply feel compelled to do it.
I don’t know if I’d go so far as to say that I am a workaholic as such but I do enjoy working. I was working on my birthday – which I would say is obscure.
I think some people are programmed to do business, even if they aren’t directly aware. People like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg, Richard Branson etc, all people who may not have directly understood the paths they’d take but I know how to do business, and make money. I know a good idea when I see one and whether something will or won’t be profitable or ‘worthwhile’.
I see work as a way to keep out of trouble, but others may call it boring. I see dollar signs, when others may not. I don’t call that boring!
