Is Balance Overrated?

By Marty Nemko

People who work long hours are derided as workaholics and out-of-balance. Is that fair? Is a person who works 60 hours a week truly lesser than someone who works 40 and spends 20 watching TV and on the golf course? I'm not saying that everyone should work long hours, but should we denigrate hard workers? For my part, I think we should praise them. And just maybe, you might ask yourself whether you truly prefer recreation over work or whether you're just being swept along by the tidal wave of conventional opinion.
