Last October I started some new work. In keeping with my all or nothing, black or white, put everything you’ve got into it philosophy, I jumped in feet first and it wasn’t long before I was in up to my neck. Soon I was working 7 day weeks and 15 hour days. I loved what I was doing but I didn’t love how long it was all taking. And that was no-one’s fault apart from mine.
Little did I realise, at the time, that I’d been lured in to the Overkill Cult.
I’m not exactly sure what changed but, after about five months, common sense started to get the better of me. I don’t know what led me to be so driven or such an over achiever or even what I was trying to prove.
