I remember the moment when I realized burnout was derailing my career. I was driving through my alma mater's campus three years into what was arguably my dream job, but I was so tired I was slumped over my steering wheel bone tired and just tired of feeling tired. As I looked out across the windshield in front of me, I saw college students dragging their bags home for Thanksgiving break, and I was filled with envy. I'd been waiting for permission from someone else or for the end of a semester to give me the clearance to actually pace myself and take a break, and not work all the time. It was in that moment that I realized, if I want to sustain my ambition over the long haul, if I want to career with impact, this way of working all the time really wasn't working. I've spent the better part of the last decade understanding and finding a way to prevent burnout from derailing my career, understanding its root causes, its warning signs, and finding a path forward for sustainable success.
