We often find ourselves stuck in limbo whenever we try to get back up to work. Herewith, it is important to let close friends and family know that you need their support and that you should also allow yourself to take a break from working to make space for self-reflection.

Remember that creative burnout is a temporary state of mind.
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.
As losing resources is more likely to cause burnout than gaining resources is to mitigate it, dealing with the negative aspects is more beneficial than using positive “band-aid” fixes. You want to drive down uncertainty and inefficiency to ensure that you aren’t doing unnecessary tasks and minimize your emotional exhaustion. To do that:
Create a chart and place your major goal at its top, followed by layers of very specific subgoals needed to attain the major goal.
Find and fix the inefficiencies in your goal hierarchy.
