What’s the difference between working hard and being obsessed?

HANNAH WRITES: When it comes to school, sports, or really anything, I’ve always been told to do my best — to work hard. I’m not in any way saying that’s wrong. We should work hard!

But when does that thing that your working towards become an obsession? When do you cross the line from hard-working into idolatry? In school, especially I’m constantly working for better grades and doing better, but when does that pursuit become a bad thing?
