I’m suffering with a little burnout at the moment. Passion feels like it dries up and you begin questioning whether you’re in the right field at all. Don’t worry, you are in the right field. You just need some time off.
Take the time and plan for future bouts of burn out by scheduling time off where you do absolutely nothing.
I’ve tried chasing perfection and it always overextends me and I end up doing well for several weeks or months only to follow that effort by six months of feeling uninspired. Chase six weeks of perfection and sacrifice one week to rest. Build a seven week cycle to help prevent burn out.
Well, this is what I’m about to try for the first time to keep from this burn out cycle from repeating. We’ll see how it goes.
