Push Pause: 3 Keys to Turn Personal Burnout into Fuel

Overwhelm, stress, burnout… these are things we have all experienced. In modern business, especially the tech industry, burnout is viewed as inevitable, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Burnout can lead to some of the deepest and truest revelations about oneself – if you know how to look for them and navigate the negativity. It takes learning the power of Pausing – facing your greatest fears and learning to be yourself again. Instead of avoiding problems or challenges (including burnout), when you know how to intentionally pause, you can address them, solve them, and learn. Pausing means you are being in service to the doing, and that is key for innovators, entrepreneurs, and all of us challenged to do more and more while we thrive.
