Infographic: The Effects of Working Too Much

Featured Image

In the early days at a new job or in your career, it is common to work a little extra hard to make a good impression. Unfortunately, if you try to keep this up long-term, you'll unintentionally set a precedence; one which no one can sustain, no matter how hard they may try. 

As the author, Kate Northrup wrote, “Somewhere along the way we've gotten the message that the more we struggle and the more we suffer, the more valuable we will become and the more successful we'll eventually be. And so we overwork ourselves, overschedule ourselves, and become "busier than thou" because we think there's some sort of prize on the other side of the pain we cause ourselves. And you know what? There's no prize. All you get from suffering is more suffering.”

In this infographic, you will find the personal and professional effects of working too much and the eye-opening statistics around overworking, all of which are featured and discussed in more depth in our guide, Work Smarter, Not Harder: 8 Ways to Take Control of Your Work Day.
