Do you get more excited about your work than about family or anything else?
Not all time

Are there times when you can charge through your work and other times when you can’t?
Oh my goodness… that is so true!

Do you take work with you to bed? on weekends? on vacation?
My laptop has it’s own pillow and side of the bed.

Is work the activity you like to do best and talk about most?
I can’t help it that I love what I do!

Do you work more than 40 hours a week?
Depends on what else I have on my social calendar.

Do you turn your hobbies into money-making ventures?
Why not? What’s wrong with that?

Do you take complete responsibility for the outcome of your work efforts?
Yes, but it also depends on who I’m having to work with.

Have your family or friends given up expecting you on time?
That’s not new at all.

Do you take on extra work because you are concerned that it won’t otherwise get done?
Doh.

Do you underestimate how long a project will take and then rush to complete it?
Ooops.

Do you believe that it is okay to work long hours if you love what you are doing?
Of course!

Do you get impatient with people who have other priorities besides work?
Way too often.

Are you afraid that if you don’t work hard you will lose your job or be a failure?
Not so much, the medication helps. (j/k!)

Is the future a constant worry for you even when things are going very well?
Deffinately.

Do you do things energetically and competitively including play?
I plead the fifth…. (that competitive part gets me in trouble every time)

Do you get irritated when people ask you to stop doing your work in order to do something else?
Depends on what that somthing else is…

Have your long hours hurt your family or other relationships?
I am under the age of 30 and on my second divorce, I always swore I’d be a stay at home Mom – but my daughter is in daycare, and I call my office my second home. (not all are reasons, but it does sound funny.)

Do you think about your work while driving, falling asleep or when others are talking?
Before, during and after!

Do you work or read during meals?
Always have

Do you believe that more money will solve the other problems in your life?
One of the benefits of working!
