What is your book about?

When your workload is excessive and you feel like there’s too much to do in the allotted time with the resources available, you experience anxiety, stress and irritability. It’s a struggle to complete your work. When you’re NOT able to get the job done in time, what happens? You’re more likely to stay late, work overtime and take work home to complete. This “over-commitment” to your job robs you of personal time, and you end up feeling guilty about not spending time with your family or taking time for yourself. Without proper recovery, you will inevitably burn out. The 7E Solution to Burnout is how you can coach yourself out of exhaustion to reclaim your joy at work.

Topics include:

  • The symptoms of burnout that most people miss
  • How your emotional intelligence is either helping or hindering you
  • Why it’s imperative to play to your strengths and minimize the time you spend on your weaknesses
  • How to reinvigorate your engagement at work and make it feel effortless
  • Obstacles that get in the way of self-care and how to remove them

Why should people read it? Who is the book for?

The book is for high achievers who are done accepting burnout, fatigue and depression as their norm, who no longer want to believe that it’s never going to get better, who want to stop switching jobs or even changing careers. If you feel like you’re stuck in a vicious circle of working hard, striving for perfection and success and then ultimately feeling completely drained and burned out, this book will help move you beyond your stuck points so that you can enjoy the work you do, live with purpose and regain your energy.

Single most important takeaway:

“Burnout is not something that happens because of something out there. It is about how you manage your mind as you navigate the chaos of your circumstances.”
