How I Quit Burnout issue #28 (Get it in your inbox next Tuesday)
We’ve made it to the last entry in the Make Work, Work section. Next week we’re onto Build Your Boundaries.
Early in my career, I was convinced my best path to career advancement was how much stuff my name was next to. I wanted to own lots of projects and workstreams. I wanted to build a big team. And I wanted to introduce and execute lots of ideas to show just how valuable I was. I listened to the hustle bro podcasts and tried to execute their playbook.
Of course when you’re doing everything, you're doing nothing at the same time. I fizzled out with my company and got burnout as my going away gift.
