How to turn out burnout

“Burnout can get the better of you, even when you have great passion for your work. Burnout often results from a misalignment of input and output; you get burnt out when you feel like you’re putting more into your work than you’re getting out of it. Sometimes this happens when a job isn’t rewarding, but more often than not it’s because you aren’t taking care of yourself.”
7 Powerful Ways To Beat Burnout, by Travis Bradberry, Forbes, November 8, 2016


Have fun; avoid burnout.

Grit! It’s not just for square-jawed ruggedly handsome Western heroes anymore

“It turns out that intelligence might not be the best indicator of future success. According to psychologist Angela Duckworth, the secret to outstanding achievement isn’t talent. Instead, it’s a special blend of persistence and passion that she calls ‘grit.'”
