Life is crazy. I've learned that much. One moment you're working to make everything good in your life and career, then before you know it, you're flat on your back, unable to do much more than dream up words that rhyme with "burnout." If you've ever been burnt out, then you know what I'm talking about.
As a passionate entrepreneur, your business means everything to you. But it's that high-achiever "I-can-do-everything" personality that makes you particularly prone to job burnout: working exceptionally long hours, taking on heavy workloads, and putting huge amounts of pressure on yourself is par for the (entrepreneurial) course.
Burnout is devastating for anyone. But it can be especially hard on those whose jobs depend on being creative and innovative every single day. Burnout snuffs out your creative spark. It makes simple tasks hard and creative ones nearly impossible. As designer Frank Chimero writes: "Fatigue happens to your body, but burnout exhausts your soul."
