But What is burnout?

“An extended period of time where someone experiences exhaustion and a lack of interest in things, resulting in a decline in their job performance.”  - David Ballard

First and foremost, recognizing the early signs of burnout and to anticipating things that cause it is the first step to freedom. It’s much easier and more efficient to manage burnout when your mental faculties are not hampered by constant exhaustion or frustration.

Ambitious people are often allergic to the word “no.” We accept any challenge or opportunity that comes our way because we want to impress our peers and superiors by juggling all sorts of obligations.
