How I Quit Burnout issue #40 (Get it in your inbox next Tuesday)
While I was busy overworking myself on the way to burning myself out, I had several unfortunate truths working against me. First, I was working long hours at work. Second, even when I wasn’t ‘working’ I was consuming books & podcats about work. Finally, I had an ever-expanding wellness routine that was pushing me deeper into burnout even though I thought it was my secret weapon.
While I told myself I was living a rich life the way the podcast bros wanted me to, there were several inescapable truths. I had no real hobbies and I hadn’t developed any local friendships in the city I had moved to years prior.
It wasn’t such a rich life after all.
