Working less won't cure burnout

Burnout is at epidemic proportions. It isn’t industry or job specific.

Symptoms include: emptiness, lethargy, and that feeling Sunday night when your stomach clenches in anticipation of the workweek.

Sometimes it can feel like despair.

Excessive exertion is only a piece of the equation.

The core catalyst of burnout is prolonged effort without meaning.

We are amazingly productive and resilient when there is meaning behind what we do.

Does your work matter?

Does your role make a difference?

Is there meaning behind what you do?

The longer these questions go unanswered, the quicker you lose your drive.

The cure to burnout isn’t less work; it’s more meaning.
