In the case of job burnout, everyone has two choices:
It does not matter what your choice is, because the bottom line of both choices means only one thing:
"I need a change!"

No one is immune from job burnout. It can happen to anyone at anytime. In fact, The World Health Organization called job stress a "World Wide Epidemic".
I know this from personal experience...I have been there as a professional and business owner. For me, at different times, I choose both options. I did choose to stay for a while, but in the end I chose to quit and start anew. In both cases I implemented many life changes, but not until I took a good long look at ME.
I want you to take a look at you before you make the choice to stay or quit...so follow along with me as we sort out the many facets involved with job burnout...
Indeed it can be for so many reasons:
Change is so vitally important, but it can have one HUGE downfall...if you don't understand what caused the job burnout in the first place, you are bound to re-create the same situation again, even if you choose to quit.
The key to successful change is to avoid getting caught in the Vicious Cycle. Don't set yourself up for another disaster...take the time now to figure it out.
First, get real with yourself, and take inventory of your LIFE.
Job burnout is a symptom that other things in your life may not be working exactly as planned. There are usually a number of fires burning and taking a broader perspective to understanding the depth of the challenge is a definite no-brainer.
Let's look at some examples of causes of job burnout that you may be aware of:
Now lets, look at some causes you may not be aware of:
If even one of these causes sounds familiar, I want you to get brutally honest with yourself and know that although your job is zapping the life out of you, perhaps there is something bigger going on.
Accepting change is scary, but looking the truth in the face can sometimes be even worse. It is sometimes much easier to just avoid all the things that are going 'wrong' in life and 'blame' your job for being the culprit of your burnout.
Avoidance is a trap though. It may work for a while, but it eats you up from the inside out, until the only worry you have left is that of your health.
Because no matter what happens in life, there is always that tricky mind-body connection that trumps everything...if you are not happy in life, your mind knows it (even with the best poker face in the world) and soon, your body will give away your dirty little secret.
The American Institute for Stress has implicated stress as the cause of nearly 90% of doctor visits in the U.S.
The Prozac cure-all will NOT cure job-burnout, I guarantee.
My suggestions...start reading, writing and talking.
Use this website as a resource, or stop by your local book store. Then grab a pen and paper and start to list your passions and skills, your life regrets or your bucket list. And then share all of this with a friend, trusted therapist or coach.
Grab the bull by the horns, re-invent yourself and forget about getting caught in vicious cycle fuelled by the trap of avoidance.
