Our biggest strengths may also become our greatest weakness. Especially in terms of our drive and dedication at work.
It’s AWESOME to be ambitious.
But here’s the problem. Continuous work makes rejuvenation impossible.
And being in “work mode” all the time, left unchecked, can lead to burnout, and wreak havoc on your life and relationships.
Now how can you tell the difference between usual burnout and a warning that it’s time for your career to change, big time?
Actually, burnout caused some serious problems for me last year. And while it’s something that needs constant awareness, I can say I’m a lot better than I used to be at shutting down and refreshing myself.
That’s why I wanted to create this episode about what I personally did to mentally and physically revitalize when I experienced burnout.
Because in this world, no matter how much perceived “success” we accomplish, nothing matters more than being genuinely and profoundly happy, doing the work we love, and linked to the people we care about.
That also involves your work. Because to deploy and live your own best life, it’s vital you stop yourself from being in overdrive mode.
I would love to hear from you now. Do you ever find it hard to get out of “work mode” and struggle with burnout?
Have you ever lost the spark for your work and considered moving on to something?
Whether you’re male or female, what strategies did you use to re-energize yourself? Or did you switch to something entirely different?
I’d love to hear what worked — and what didn’t — for you too.
As usual, thank you for reading, watching and sharing!
Lots of love,
