A Solar Eclipse

A solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun. The moon's shadow falls on the Earth's surface and blocks out the sun's light as we see it from the Earth.

The moon crosses the Earth's orbital plane only twice a year because the moon orbits the Earth at an angle. For an eclipse to take place, the moon must be in the correct phase. For a solar eclipse, it must be a new moon.

The word "blockbuster" has wartime origins

The word first appeared in the pages of TIME. It was an article on the Allied bombing of key industrial targets in Italy. The bombs used were called blockbusters because of their ability to destroy an entire city block.

With time, the word entered the American lexicon as a metaphor for something shocking and explosive.

  2. Place a buffer - Aim as high as you want but don't put too much pressure on yourself because it will lessen your motivation
  3. Minimize recurrent decisions - Prioritize making better decisions and worry less on things that are not important
  4. Practice delayed gratification
  5. Learn useful skills.

How to overcome burnout
  • Prioritise Nourishment.  Get quality rest, eat food that will fuel your body's recovery, exercise gently, get fresh air and also nourish your heart.
  • Acknowledge Your Part.  Face the real reasons you burned out.
  • Build Some Guide Rails.  Establish new boundaries. It's about knowing the difference between the things you’re willing to go the extra mile for when life demands it, and the things that mean enough to you for you to enforce your boundaries.

  • Don’t Do it Alone. You don't need to do everything yourself. It’s okay to seek support.

  • Give a Damn. Sometimes, being in a bad place can be the perfect opportunity to make some new choices.
