Part of it is the American work ethic. Comparing similiar rates of productivity in Europe and the US saw that people in the US worked more for the same amount of productivity.
Now I am not saying we need to be lazy by any means, but the idea that more work equals success is only true up to a point and many people dont seem to understand this; the workaholics and people that apoint busy work simply for the sake of it.
Granted, some people do love their jobs, but they likely arnt doing that work simply for the sake of working or looking busy.
To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
