W.I.N. Is Not For You If:
LOOKING FOR HEAVY, CLINICAL (AKA BORING?) MATERIALS
You can find that at Workaholics Anonymous and hundreds of other references you can find on Yahoo and other search engines. We don't know anyone who would actually read those books - they are too busy working at their regular routine.
FYI - Yahoo is the most popular search engine and the hardest to get listed on and to get high listings - the more relevant your site is to the word searched on, the higher it is listed - AND OUR W.I.N. SITE IS #1 on Yahoo among the 6011 listings for "workaholic" and the 1610 listings for "workaholics (plural)." It's a moving target, but at least as I type this, we're the most relevant site for workaholic information by Yahoo standards!
YOU OR YOUR ASSOCIATE ARE A "SICK" WORKAHOLIC, THE KIND WHO RUINS LIVES - THEIR OWN AND THOSE AROUND THEM
You know, if you work or hang around at a Cancer Center, you are going to spend all day looking at people who have cancer. And if you are booking people for a talk show whose lives have been ruined by Workaholics, you're going to spend all day looking at people who know people at the far extreme of working too hard - or who had other reasons for preferring to be at work but work was easier to blame than the real reason.
I've been working too hard for over 30 years, and I know lots of people who work too hard. For 11 years now I have managed an association of 4,000 people, I'm very active, out and about - I know a ton of people. But, I personally don't know any people who have ruined other people's lives because they worked too hard. Drug addicts, alcoholics, party animals - who ruined lives, them I've met, but not life ruining workaholics.
So Workaholics International Network is the talk show for people who work too hard, and for those who work with them and love them, and who probably would love to GET A LIFE and could use some encouragement to do so.
If you think that this site is making life WORSE for the families of workaholics by making light of their situation, then you belong in Workaholics Anonymous because they agree with you. And you and they may be right, I'm not qualified to say.
But, if you think humor is the best medicine, and you aren't "sick," you just work too much, then I believe our Workaholics association is for you.
