The Superman Syndrome
Summary: The Superman Syndrome is firmly and broadly entrenched in our culture and characteristics of the work-obsessed businessperson of the day. Enabled by laptops, cell phones, wireless modems and fax machines, working through the early morning commute to work, through power lunches, and late into the evening, the businessperson sacrifices much in the pursuit of success. The ease of communication has led to overproliferation, creating a huge volume of data to process. Yet, we may appear unworthy, undeserving of success if we try to cut back. Seeking to avoid such technological enablers undermines our efforts to achieve super status.
