My professional career began in public accounting at the beginning of tax season in 1979. It was mandatory that I work 55 hours a week, but expected that I work 70 hours or more!
After working tax seasons year after year I became accustomed to placing work over relationships. Years later I realized I was a workaholic and needed to overcome my constant drive to work. Although it may seem simplistic, one of the things that helped me the most was carrying around a Bible verse in my briefcase.
Psalm 127:2 taught me, “In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to those he loves.”
Being a good steward of your time sometimes means that it’s time to go home.
