Understanding what your team, clients, family, or friends expect from you is important to build and keep a healthy relationship.
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. You shouldn't make space for people who bring constant negativity.
Hi all! I'm putting together a list of the top 5 reasons for Burnout by different professions (e.g., Corporate workers, Entrepreneurs, Social Workers). For corporate workers, I have the following:
1. Working Long Hours
2. Too Many Tasks
3. Constantly Thinking About Work
4. Lack of Support To Complete Work Or For Mental/Emotional Peace Of Mind
5. Insufficient Rewards For Work Performance
Do you agree with the order? Should I include something else in the top 5? Would appreciate any feedback!
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.
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.
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.
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?
Who is responsible for Employee burnout? The organization, the team and superiors or the employee himself?
Being resourceful includes being timely in knowing who can help you when you need it. If you genuinely build relationships with people, you will genuinely want to help each other.
Your work becomes easier when you have a helping hand as needed.
There are many common symptoms of Burnout. E.g., Changes in sleeping patterns, negativity, low energy, lack of motivation, not caring about work. The list can go on for a while.
But they all fall under the umbrella of three major symptoms:
3. Professional Efficacy
Are you ignoring your symptoms? If not, which one do you have?

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 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.
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
What's triggering you to feel exhausted, negative, or lose your motivation?
We all start our jobs full of hope and promise. That same hope and promise may still be there. However, the eventual grind or consistent overcommitment of anything will trigger you towards Burnout if you are not aware of them.
Be aware if you are consistently over-committing to something that will burn you out. Take breaks. Change your patterns. Whatever you need to do. Just don't overdo it.
It's important to find someone you can trust to share your thoughts and feel comfortable knowing someone has your back instead of you "bottling" your situation to yourself.
Recovery is harder when it's a lonely road.
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.
If you are working hard at something you believe is important, but others (e.g., your boss, clients, customers) do not align with it, you will burn yourself out faster.
Make sure you align with the beliefs of every stakeholder of your work.
