When you’re burned out, you’re more than tired or stressed. You’re emotionally exhausted and ineffective in your job. You may start seeing cynicism creeping into your daily routine, and you just can’t shake it. Taking one or two days off doesn’t solve your mood either.
Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Our weaknesses, for some reason, outshine our strengths like a beam of light. We all become focused on our shortcomings, comparing other’s strengths to our weaknesses. Maybe that’s why we try to improve our weaknesses through self-help books, podcasts, or self-improvement classes.
