Do You Focus On Your Job When Other Things Go Downhill?

Do You Focus on Your Job When Other Things Go Downhill?

Breaking up with George Clooney seems like it would be catastrophic for a girl lucky enough to date him, but in this week's People a friend of Sarah Larson's says that post-breakup Sarah is focusing on her work.

Putting your extra energy into your work can be a productive way to spend your time while getting over something else, whether it be a breakup, a fight with a friend, an argument with a family member, or when you're feeling down in general. Working harder is likely to get noticed and will get you the compliments and ego-boost you need, and the feeling of accomplishment when you surprise yourself is something that nobody else can give you.

Of course the real issues need to be addressed at some point, but do you tend to focus on your job when other areas of your life aren't stable?
