Remember those days….
Maybe it was that time in the school year when you felt like there was nothing to look forward to? It was winter. The fun holiday season was past and it seemed like the gray skies and cold weather was never going to end. Plus, you were into the meat of the school year and EVERYTHING seemed like too much WORK!
The only escape you could think of was a day on the couch with an afghan and a Cup ‘O Soup!
Maybe you are having those same kind of doldrums attacking your enthusiasm to work in your firm. You could be living a case of burn-out. But, there's no time to be burned out when YOU are the leader AND the magic in your practice.
Fight burnout with these simple survival tactics
You know the symptoms: You don’t care about your work anymore, you dread going to your job every day, you’re no longer motivated to do your best, and your relationships with your staff is deteriorating. If you’re suffering from job burnout, you owe it to your staff, your clients, and ultimately yourself to find a solution. Here are some ideas to explore:
• Take time for yourself. Devote part of your day to things that really matter to you personally instead of obsessing about work all the time. A regular break can replenish your energy.
• Rediscover your passion. Think about what really got you excited when you began your career. Does it still fire you up? Look for ways to bring that spark back into your firm and your life.
• Seek support. Talk to your family, friends, and trusted colleagues about what’s going on. They’ll offer ideas and support, and you won’t feel as isolated and ignored.
