Tips for Overcoming Burnout
It happens. Even if you truly love what you do, eventually, you will get burned out. The best thing I have found to combat this is to have outside interests. For the workaholics, hobbies may seem like a waste of time. The reality is they allow you to be more productive and produce more while you are working. There comes a point where you can continue pushing forward but you are not making any more significant progress. Instead of constantly pushing for more, take a step back. Shift your focus to something else you enjoy and allow yourself to recharge.
Some people may take a couple weeks vacation once or twice a year but taking mini breaks throughout the week can be very beneficial. Try spending a little time each day doing something else you really enjoy that is not related to your business. If you have to, schedule daily time for yourself. Yes, actually schedule it like you would a meeting.
The act of simply switching gears and focusing on something other than work can make all the difference. Sometimes you need to take a step back to really move forward.
