No matter how gung-ho you are when you first launch your business, stress and exhaustion may eventually get the better of you. When that happens, burnout can kick in, and burnout has the ability to sap your will to work as well as any interest you have in your job. If you feel it coming on, what can you do stop it in its tracks?
Sometimes what you need is a break from your day to day grind. Get out of town and attend a conference. Going to an industry event can help to energize you and revive both your interest and your pride in your chosen field. Not to mention the fact that you’ll leave with a whole new list of contacts. You should also take a look at how you’re spending your free time. Are you doing the things you enjoy? If you spend almost all of your time doing things you don’t like doing, chances are it’s contributing greatly to your burnout. Try to balance your schedule so you have more time for leisure, or for tackling the aspects of your business that you love. This means that delegating more tasks to your team is often one of the best ways to help yourself avoid burnout. Have you ever felt burned out at work? What did you do to solve the problem?
