Before you’re burnt out you get ‘cooked’. That’s the point you need to start saying no more. You need to carve out the time you need to get recharged so that you can keep going for decades.

Sadly im well too familiar with this feeling, and it has been like for more years.
Pushing myself to hard and use my work as a escape for personal issues, then getting into trouble professionally which ultimately gets me into trouble with my personal relationships.
A vicious cycle really, one that im still struggling to get out of. I got to the point some close friends question my ability to move out of this. To be honest, I can’t tell either.
I love my job, I really do, but it has been a blessing and a curse, all because I have a lot of trouble balancing things.
Your message really resonates with me, the main difference being that I don’t have a family and very few friends to let the steam off.
Finally Curtis, I think this is my first comment here, although I’ve been watching you blog for a while and I really like your tips and perspective on things. Thank you for sharing them.
Hope you’re feeling better when you reading this, enjoy you holidays.
