On Monday, I wrote about the need to avoid burnout, especially when pursuing your dream. Our culture tends to idolize the busy — making heroes out of those who sacrifice everything in order to achieve their dream.
There was so much chatter about the post — on Facebook and LinkedIn —mostly from people asking how to avoid burnout. Knowing the need to avoid burnout is great, but taking the steps to build a life that is burnout-free doesn’t come easy to most.
We live in a society that is all about go-go-go-go-go. We’re constantly plugged into email, social media, and the latest news. Down time is deemed laziness in our new culture.
Avoiding burnout isn’t part of our world.
So we need to be proactive.
