Catholic business leaders have said a work-life balance is critical for success after a video of presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg advising workers to avoid taking breaks went viral last week.
In a video clip of a 2011 interview with TechCrunch, Bloomberg-billionaire founder of the news and financial services company Bloomberg L.P., and former mayor of New York City-gave his recipe for workplace success. He advised employees against taking lunch breaks and even suggested they should avoid going to the bathroom. The video was repeatedly shared on social media last week and viewed thousands of times.
"I'm not smarter than anybody else, but I can outwork you," Bloomberg said of his work ethic.
"My key to success-for you or for anybody else-is make sure you're the first one in there every day, and the last one to leave. Don't ever take a lunch break or go to the bathroom, you keep working. You never know when that opportunity is going to come along," he said.
