The question is....will you be able/courageous/adult enough to sacrifice that which merely pleases you...for that which will truly fulfill you? That is the question of personal growth.

Read through the full forum post. Quite interesting actually, oddly enough at the peak of my WoW addiction I was promoted to a second-level role in the tech support job I was working at the time, and was consistently near the top of any of the performance metrics used. I worked with several other WoW addicts who also did very well at work. Then again, every single one of us abused the hell out of energy drinks to do our job because none of us slept properly during the week. I'm not one to say what view an employer should take on that.
