Daily Buzz: Reframe Your Work Approach to Minimize Burnout

Remember - everyone matters especially you

Grinding every day at work can help you reach the next level of your career, but a nonstop workflow will also pave a path straight to burnout.

To keep enthusiasm up and exhaustion low, professionals need to re-frame how they approach their work, workplace coach Anne Sugar writes on Inc. And often that process starts with evaluating your workflow biannually.

“Sometimes, it can be hard to figure out where it is you’re having difficulties in your work. That’s why it’s essential to evaluate every six months how you get work done,” she says. “Look at everything you do with beginner’s eyes.”

Another key to a new work mindset: Let go of perfectionism.

“For example, many highly successful leaders believe they can’t ever miss a deadline or ask for help,” Sugar explains. “However, leaders I’ve worked with have learned that if they ‘drop the ball’ once in a while, they won’t be fired.”

So, self-reflect on your expectations of yourself. Are they realistic? If not, try lowering your standards to a more attainable expectation of work. And when you do feel overwhelmed or need to push back on a deadline, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
