I was recently leading a conversation
around the concept of goal setting my Mastermind Group and encouraging participants to envision a
large goal and then break it down into milestones or smaller goals leading up
to the big win.
One of my participants was in a rut, plain and simple. She
was not feeling it anymore. She is an entrepreneur with a successful business
fully aligned with her life purpose, her values and how she wants to make an
impact in the world but she was feeling drained, exhausted and foggy in her
mind. She said, “I don’t even know what I’m doing anymore, I can’t
even set a goal.”
My first question was, “How long has it been since you
disconnected from work, took a vacation?”
“6 years,” she responded.
She had been building her business, something she had
dreamed of for so long, for six years never slowing down or disconnecting from her screen even in the weekends. She
was burnt out.
It doesn’t matter what role we play, whether we are running
our own business, or looking to plough ahead in our career in the corporate
world, the same rule applies. Nothing comes from nothing.
We cannot be productive, creative & efficient if we
don’t recharge our batteries.
Within a week of that conversation, having assigned my client full screen/technology disconnect in
weekends, my client was smiling again. She reported feeling more refreshed,
less overwhelmed and ready to start clarifying her vision again.
She has since created boundaries within her workday as well
as weekends, and is planning on taking her first full two weeks off, completely
disconnected from work, this month.
How do you know when you are burnt out?
How do you recharge your batteries?
Send me a note and let me know. Or come to my Facebook page and join in the conversation. Or, if you want, book some time to connect directly on the phone with me.
