Being an entrepreneur is tough. We all know that. But what’s even tougher is avoiding burnout along the way. British-Australian entrepreneur Kate Kendall shared a post on her blog yesterday exploring this topic from the lens of her personal struggles. She states:
Burnout feels like you (can) no longer give a shit about things you usually care so much for. Your momentum is off. Giving up seems like a serious option. You’re indecisive and lost. You feel bitter.
Kendall also goes on to share some tips for managing and avoiding burnout that she is picking up as she works her way through her current funk. The secret sauce here is that you must anticipate the fact that you will burnout if you maintain an unhealthy routine. It is much better to get into a sustainable rhythm that supports a lifestyle you can maintain over the long run.
