An unbalanced life means you are focusing on too little or too many pillars. If you invest in only 1-2 pillars, it may be too little. It's like investing in a stock. You live and die on that 1-2 stocks.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Anyone have any stories of their worst burnout feeling?

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.

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

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.

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
