Are you a workaholic? If so, what makes you overwork? The three basic needs of Alderfer's ERG theory explain how people are motivated at work. Many people overwork to make more money for Existence needs, feel a sense of beings in their life for Relatedness needs, and feel a sense of accomplishment for Growth needs (Kreitner 97). work is an expression of money, a sense of belonging, and a sense of accomplishment. When the more people desire them, then the more they work. Overwork provides us with not only great experiences but also terrible results as well. Too much overwork may become a serious addiction which causes unbalanced life and unpleasant relationship between a worker and other people like family and friends. Therefore, it is important to keep the balance between work and life in our life.

There is, however, an external pressure from a manager or an organization that makes people work harder regardless of self-satisfaction or self-actualization. According to Baldoni, "eight of 10 workers were disengaged" in the work place. Also "As many as six in 10 are looking to exit, according to the Hay Group. Some 85 percent of those not looking are staying still because the job market remains weak" (Baldoni). That means that people work hard in spite of dissatisfaction, underpayment, or low morale because they think that the recession of economy keeps going on and they do not want to lose their job during the period. It may lead to job dissatisfaction, stress, and a decreased a sense of accomplishment.
