Do You Want to Be More Productive and Successful?

10 Dec

A new study conducted by researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows the ONE THING you do NOT want to do if you want to be as productive and successful as possible. The study reports employers in the United States (US) lost $77 billion in 2010 thanks to workers’ impaired productivity due to excessive alcohol abuse – a number that jumps to almost $90 billion once other drinking-induced factors such as absenteeism are added to the mix.

According to an article published by Bloomberg, “The study came up with an even more dire number for alcohol abuse’s effect on the US economy overall that same year: $249 billion, a number that includes not only the lost-productivity toll, but also spending on healthcare, crime, car crashes, and alcohol-caused deaths. That headache seems to be getting worse. Back in 2006, the same cost to the U.S. economy was $224 billion, outpacing inflation…”

Study author Dr. Robert Brewer adds, “The increase in the costs of excessive drinking from 2006 to 2010 is concerning, particularly given the severe economic recession that occurred during these years.”

Clearly, excessive alcohol consumption is one of the best ways to destroy your career and health. Even if your career is not negatively impacted to the point that you lose your job, you may never be as successful as you could be. The same is true when it comes to your health. The damage from excessive drinking often takes YEARS to rear its ugly head and show symptoms.
