Workaholism And Multitasking Myths

Press Release   •   Jun 04, 2013 14:19 EDT

A quick Google search of “Karl Palachuk” will result in page after page of hits. He is a successful IT Consultant, speaker, popular blogger, and the author of ten books.

What Karl is not well known for, however, is the subject of one of the latest JenningsWire Podcasts.

Karl has Rheumatoid Arthritis, a disease that brings a world of chronic pain and fatigue to sufferers. A disease that certainly hinders the lifestyle of anyone diagnosed, even more so for those committed to an endless workaholic lifestyle.

Karl had to change.

JenningsWire Creator Annie Jennings and Radio Director Stacy Amaral Kauffman interview Karl about his book Relax, Focus Succeed; A Guide to Balancing Your Personal and Professional Lives and Becoming More Successful in Both.

Annie says she chose Karl to participate on the show because “JenningsWire is about creating a nurturing community of people who can share real-life wisdom. The human, personal stories that connect us and teach us are at the heart of JenningsWire and Karl’s book embraces this virtue”.

The discussion spans how Karl dealt with his diagnosis and how he chose to share that experience through the Relax, Focus, Succeed book. Annie connects with Karl’s tips on managing stressful workloads by sharing her experience in setting up the current JenningsWire website, which was a high pressure situation involving hundreds of bloggers relying on her and an unfortunate online platform that was failing to deliver.
