“Every job has built in difficulties.”
Difficulties, alone, don’t cause job burn out. Lack of control drains us and leads to frustration.
If people and situations don’t demand our best, we soon become bored. So, some stress is both expected and good.
To avoid job burn out, we must embrace challenges that keep us interested and performing at our peak. Labeling difficulties as challenges also helps us balance our personal and work related lives.
You have a personal responsibility to yourself, your well-being and your happiness. Don’t let job stress control you. If you need to make changes to avoid burn out, take action today!
