Sure.

Life is about balance.

But the mortgage still needs to be paid.

Emails need to be answered.

Awesomeness needs to be checked.

You can never focus on your goals and priorities too much, so I guess that's up to the individual to decide. However, speaking for me, yes, you can think about work too much. I've set boundaries in my mind to shut work off by 7pm Mon-Fri, by last client Saturday and ALL DAY Sundays. My family and non-career goals are more important than thinking of work. My commitment to my family & other goals is they get the best of me, not what's left of me.

Too much?

I don't know. I think about food quite frequently. The consequence of failing to do so can be significant.

Yeah, but I learned to accept it, my entrepreneur mind is always thinking about business, if I walk into any hotel or resort I immediately start thinking about what I would change if I could buy the hotel today. I tell people its a disease, but its of no danger to anyone but myself. Helps in making money from various businesses thats for sure!

One of the greatest challenges is to focus on "where you are".  If you are at work, that's where your mind should be.  If you are at home, that's where your mind should be.  In real estate, it is particularly difficult to set boundaries.
