Not everyone is a good listener.  Most people have a habit of listening to find a way to relate your story to their lives and then tell you how it relates. A small percentage of people will listen to you, show empathy, find ways to help you, cheer you on, and overall, keep the focus on you and your needs.  Next time you have a conversation, find out who's really listening to you.

Focus on you. It's mentally draining having to think about what others think of you or if they even like you. Focus on your growth, and the rest will follow.

Most companies try to deal with Burnout by throwing money at it with wellness programs or vacations. What happens when people come back from their programs or vacations? They are back to the same situation that led to their Burnout in the first place. Companies need to fix the work culture of their leadership.

Surrounding yourself with the right people can make a major impact in living the life that you want. People who Teach, Empower, and Support you in every aspect of your life will fast-track your growth. Also, surrounding yourself with these people will give you an environment of freedom to talk about anything. Do you have these types of people in your current relationships? If so, make sure you prioritize building on them as they are your keepers.

Are you living in the moment? People say this all the time, but do you know what that means or how to do it? Living in the moment, or being present, means you are mindful and enjoying what is happening right now and not distracted by the distant past or future worries. Being present is HARD because our mind likes to wander. Here are 4 key themes of people who live (and thrive) in the present moment: 1. Focus on your breath 2. Be curious 3. Find your flow 4. Forgive yourself and others

Do you know how burned out you are exactly? According to psychologists Herbert Freudenberger (who invented the term "Burnout") and Gail North, there are 12 stages. Burnout has a wide range, from "I can't wait for the day to be over" to having a complete mental or physical collapse. Make sure you pay attention to your symptoms and not lose track of who you are and where you need to be mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Here is an insight for you all today—key elements to living life with purpose. Finding purpose in your life changes the way you think, behave, and communicate with others. You lose track of time because you are too busy enjoying what you have at the moment. To find purpose in your life requires three key elements: 1) Presence 2) Values 3) Challenges Without these three elements, you can never feel fulfilled and live life with a purpose.

What is your most productive time of the day? Morning, afternoon, or the evening?

Behavioral patterns dictate where you will be in the future. Positive patterns help you reach that future faster. Negative patterns delay or redirect the future you want for yourself. You are in control of breaking a negative pattern. When things aren't going your way, there are things you are doing that are contributing to it. Are you consistently: Working long hours, not communicating, or accepting negativity? If what you are doing is negative for your standards, break the pattern

When I was managing consulting projects, I told my teams that they should feel free to communicate with me if they had any issues or concerns. However, I also wanted their ideas about what they would do to solve the issue they are raising. Situations can get "extreme," or small issues may arise when you are in the heat of the moment trying to accomplish your goals. That's normal. But to change the pattern and prevent Burnout, you need to communicate with an action. @Burnoutcoachcarlo

Whom you surround yourself with is a choice, just like everything else in your life. Don't underestimate the strength you can gain from having the right people by your side who genuinely support you through good times and bad.

I've had my run-ins with people who like to linger in their thoughts and spend time circling in conversation because, whether they knew it or not, they were not sure what they were looking to achieve. This has burned me in the past (e.g., Hours spent revising material, unnecessary back-and-forth communication with clients). Hence, when you are assigned something or create something for yourself, make sure you are fully aware of your end goal, so you know what you are working towards and how t

Do you know any professionals who like to "dip their toes" into many things and can't commit to what is expected of them? If you cannot execute on producing good quality work, don't take on a new task/role. You will exhaust yourself, and your work effort will reflect badly on the stakeholders. They will also communicate to others accordingly. IG: Burnoutcoachcarlo

There may come the point where constant meetings, being around the same people, or the same environment will cloud your creativity. When this happens, you may need time to yourself in a different environment to think clearly without any disturbance.  Great ideas can wake you up in the middle of the night, during a shower, while walking in the park, or any other setting outside of a meeting.

Think about your current situation. For example, what are you spending time on that is outside of your control? - Are you trying to change someone's behavior/belief? - Are you forcing someone to like you? - Are you breaking someone's pattern abruptly? Focus on making yourself better and what you feel you can control. IG: @Burnoutcoachcarlo

Work doesn't have to cater towards someone else's structure constantly. Find what works for you. Being good at your job includes knowing how to maximize your efficiency, from knowing what times you are most productive, creative, responsive, and energetic. Examples: Working remote vs. in office, scheduling important meetings in the morning vs. afternoon, creating more break times to walk around IG: @Burnoutcoachcarlo

When you have those tasks that seem never-ending, maybe even repetitive, possibly a multi-day effort (or any other long periodic timeframe), set an "acceptable-for-you" limit where you would feel accomplished when you reach it. Then, determine your energy levels and decide if you can/want to do more or call it a day. Example: Setting a limit to how much daily progress you want to make towards a 10-15 page final deliverable for your client. IG: Burnoutcoachcarlo

A majority of society tends to stick around to things because they are influenced by "enough" people doing something similar. Hence, they start living someone else's life instead of theirs. Think about what you want for yourself, what's important, what you value. Then, ask yourself. Do I have these things? Am I living by the things that are important to me? IG: Burnoutcoachcarlo

Burnout is because you did something consistently for an extended period. You can do quick fixes like go on vacation, get some sleep, exercise more. But they may only help temporarily, depending on your level of Burnout. Try adjusting your approach to work / life to a more sustainable, and ideally, enjoyable balance. IG: Burnoutcoachcarlo

As you grow with your company and take on more responsibilities, delegation becomes MANDATORY to be effective in your role. Just don't confuse delegation as an excuse to get away from tasks while you don't work on anything important. Rather, use it to grow efficiently by working on the most important tasks while others help you.
