“You’re a ROCKSTAR” “AMAZING WORK” “WOW you must never sleep” “Can you take this on? Yes? Great!”
“When will you finish it?” “Are you done yet?” “What’s taking so long?”
Burnout is a slow-burn to slightly destructive tendencies. We strive so much to be our best selves, and deliver the best work we can. Sometimes we push ourselves to extremes we sometimes cannot even fathom but more importantly, we forget the consequences of what’s next… Burnout. What happens when we approach and arrive at burnout?
