A guest blog post that became a personal therapy session just discussing all those feelings related to burnout and working hard and striving for something greater –– and the toll it takes on you. So many feelings. Enjoy a few quotes below from our musings:
It seems like this is the price of getting anything done these days. The drag out fight to get through the inbox, finish the proposals, revise the proposals, order the flowers, run the payroll, prepare for events, all while managing a personal life. It feels like that SO many days –
Instead of enjoying, thriving, creating, loving. When entrepreneurship should be the ultimate freedom – to work for yourself and do what you love everyday, why does it too often become the excuse for being burnt out. A walking zombie. Drained of all emotional, physical, and creative energy. Lacking in ambition, direction in life, or direction in business.
So many feelings! We run through a bunch of things we implement to help us manage the burnout feelings. Because the hustle is often necessary and it shouldn’t be bad as long as there is a purpose and as long as it’s not ALWAYS and doesn’t last too long.
