When you have projects, presentations, and deadlines piling on top of each other, it’s easy to get lost in it all. When the stress becomes overwhelming, you put yourself at risk for burnout on the job, a state that will make it even harder for you to handle all of your responsibilities.
Workplace burnout goes beyond being tired or a little bit overworked. When you experience burnout, you face inhibiting problems, such as the inability to concentrate or focus, lasting exhaustion, loss of motivation, or even emotional withdrawal. Although being overstressed typically entails too much, burnout entails not enough; namely, not enough hope, motivation, or energy to complete your work or deal with responsibilities. There is no question, then, that that the effects of burnout can negatively impact your productivity, personal life, and career.
