    My old boss used to live for the job. Sad *******.

    On the other hand, if you love what you do, great. Even if it does make you come off as an unfulfilled c*** to the rest of us.

    I'm a perfectionist, but I'm not sure it's always equivalent to being a workaholic (even though the two can be complimentary). To use myself as an example, if I could get away with it, I'd only work when the mood took me. I love what I do for work, but if I didn't have to do it, I'd certainly not do it five days a week. I can think of plenty of things I'd rather do instead.

    I'd still want everything I wrote to be perfect, however :laugh:

    It never is.

    Yeah I can totally relate to that. It’s all about whether the thing you do is a)mandatory and rewarding b) you’re in the mood for it

    When I’m in the mood for something I can work 24/7. When I’m not, I can still do it if I have to but I feel pretty shite and I’d rather just have a cold one and watch the footy:laugh:

    And the perfectionist part. It can be annoying cause you feel like you always could of done things better, but I guess it’s still a good mindset to have. You tried your best after all.

    yep someone in my family is one

    it annoys his wife and kids and various other family members but personally he inspires me. I've always been impressed with people who have an intense passion for something even if that something is their job
