Sometimes we are just so fucking tired. If you feel overwhelmed, sometimes on a day-to-day basis, you're not alone. This week, we're talking about burnout: being exhausted and overwhelmed. If we constantly feel behind, is it about us personally, or the pace of our lifestyle?
Raise your hand if you've told yourself, "I'll just get past this busy season and then it will be calmer." Is it ever calmer? Not really. The truth is, another busy season is always on its way.
Entrepreneurs have an early bird mindset. We're constantly chasing new opportunities, even when we already have enough on our plate. It's easy to think our career success is solely based on how often we work, how quickly we respond and how many hours we put in. Unluckily for us, that leads straight to one thing: burnout, featuring a long emotional night at our desk with a pint of ice cream.
Times of stress don't come in seasons. Instead of constantly trying to push through, racing toward a non-existent, calm horizon, how can we learn to manage our workloads without burning out?
