I don’t like religious or political fanatics. They cause more harm than perhaps any other humans.

I love work fanatics.

They make every day a blast.

great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or an objective a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal

I use the following quote a lot. It’s on the wall next to my desk and I’d be quite happy with this as a eulogy:

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both. ”

James A Michener

I hope that people think of me as a work fanatic (and you can still have balance – that’s called planning, organisation and delegation).

Here’s a question for you.

Is there such a thing as a part-time work fanatic?
