A concise article that identifies the signs of overwork, which the Bible incidentally sees as a knee jerk response after the fall of the world in Genesis 3.
Just like underwork, they are extreme over corrections to the frustration of working in a world that doesn’t always work properly. Jesus concluded that the man who kept building barns during a bumper crop was unaware how short life really was, he was in fact, a fool. ( Luke 12:16-21)

"We all face internal and external pressures to overwork. But to be fulfilled in your life and career, you need to push back against those forces. First, understand that overwork is not necessary for professional success; if you find yourself triggered by others who believe it is, remind yourself of the truth with positive self-talk. Second, be clear on your values and follow them. Third, focus not on hustling to get ahead but on deeper goals and your craft. Fourth, find positive role models who have secured their achievement without overworking. And, finally, learn to ignore unreasonable requests, even when they come from the boss."
