Avoiding Burnout

Avoiding Burnout

I’ve seen entrepreneurs learn the lesson of “burning out” the hard way - either by physical and/or mental collapse or emotional stress that comes from damaging their relationships by working too many hours. When burnout occurs productivity wanes, energy lessens, motivation disappears, and a sense of despair can occur. You are far more likely to make poor decisions, doubt your competence, develop a bad attitude or give up and quit when you experience burnout. I’ve put together a few suggestions to avoid burnout 1. Prioritize every morning If you are constantly thinking of everything that you have to do you will get overwhelmed before you even get out of bed. What do you need to accomplish this month? Break it down into 4 weeks, then break your week down into daily tasks. Each day choose your top 3 priorities and start your day by getting these priorities done first, then move onto other things on your list. 2.  Schedule in a break for 20 - 30 minutes per day This break is for you to have some quality alone time each day.

We may not have as much pressure on us as Jesse Owens did or be in a major competition with all the best competitors in the world in our business category, but we are in competition against ourselves on a daily basis. I believe that this is where we can truly be a “winner”. We should focus on being our best “inner” self, not on just achieving “outer” success. So how do we do it? How do we become our best self?

Book Of The Month – March

Book of the Month – March

For the month of March the book that I’ve chosen is The Art of Significance: Achieving the Level Beyond Success by Dan Clark. Dan is a good friend of mine and I have a tremendous amount of respect for him and his wisdom. He is a master motivator with high integrity which is why I’m recommending his book. Dan was so gracious to write the foreword to my book for which I’m grateful. I’m sure that many of you have heard him speak, so you are aware of his ability to inspire people to become their best self.   Book summary This book isn’t your average business leadership book, but a complete instruction manual for going beyond successful to becoming significant.

He believes it's tragic and superficial to build our careers and personal lives around getting more money, bigger houses, cooler toys, and fancier job titles. What's it all worth in the end? How many outwardly successful people still feel empty inside?
