Identifying Critcal Signs of Burnout

Good morning or evening citizens (savages) of the war room. I was just visiting the academy again and found a cool article on burnout. Now, your probably wonder why I'm sending this link.


Its because I'm gathering your probably in many instances very busy and pretty much warn out from all the BS of the day to visit the academy.


What I found rather enjoyable about this article is the very practical but very serious examples it gives about the signs of someone feeling burned out. Signs that no one should ever ignore.



Here are some good points I took from this article:


1. Never ignore your feelings.

2. Have someone you can contact at all times. Or us here at the WR.

3. Get your priorities straight: "Your job is not worth your mental or physical health.

4. Have a place where you can release any tension you may have.

5. Reward yourself.

6. Reevaluate your career, if need be.

7. Do what makes you happy.

8. Don't say your going to do it, like Nike, just do it. Because most times then none you will second guess yourself or something will come up.

9. If your manager just says, "what's next" that means your the best, (Perspective).

10. And if you have kids, get a bottle of your favorite brew, and ignore them, works for me. Lol


Don't let your burnout take control of your life. Hope this is useful.

The breaks throughout the day is the hardest part for me. I swear to god I cannot get people to stop booking over my Focus time so I have literally 15 meetings a day because I am not allowed to say no. I have started using "Out of the Office" instead of Focus Time so people would respect it, but now my manager is up my butt about all the OOTO time.
I need time to write emails and time to update CRM and time to pet my dogs! GET OFF MY BACK.

(Yes, I am more than a little burnt out)

If you're WFH, get a dog. Unless they're coming to your house to clean up piss, people will respect that you need to break.
Also good to get outside and have a furry friend.

Do not take my response in anyway but one that is trying to help. Remember that your manager has somene else's boot straps on his neck and that OOTO carries the stigma of not being reachable, but has anyone physically ever told you that you can't say NO. I agree that having 15 meetings a day and answering emails (I can only imagine how many) can be very taxing on someone mental and physical state. (I suppose they are sending requestes for meetings, am i correct on this assessment?) Do you have the power to schedule the meetings. Have you ever asked those that are booking meetings or sending requests "in order to have a productive and quality assured outcome to these meetings I will be scheduling 10 meeting today and the other 5 tomorrow" your not saying "NO", your letting them know that all 15 or so will get done in a timely manner. If this is not the case then you need to adopt the frame of mind that, "you can only control what you can control." Your personal life and your perspective are truly the only 2 things in this world you have full control. You need to give yourself a truly gratifying outlet outside of your work environment that will allow you to have something to looking forward to and with all do respect I don't mean going to the bar and getting wrecked. I have done that and it doesn't help. I mean something you LOVE too do. Hope this helps.

I made more or less all the mistakes but I learned from them. Problably will make some of them again but still you get better at recognising the situation

Generally speaking; how much discount are we giving clients without managers approval to drag those stubborn deals over the line?
