Dealing with burnout

Seems like I have been burning the candle at both ends recently.  I don’t feel like I am accomplishing everything that I need to get done.  This week feels like I have hit a wall.  The day just seems to come to a close before I am ready.  Today’s post is the 41st post for me.  Has it really been two months since I started penning these thoughts?  For someone who was never really fond of writing, I was more of the numbers/science/history types, this experience has been quite educational.  It is another way of working through some of the myriad of information in my head.  Just putting these thoughts down tonight, seems to have eased some of the tension.  This project was somewhat forced.  I am testing a theory that goes along the lines of the old saying, “if it doesn’t kill you it makes you stronger”.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.

One of the things I have learned these past four years is, that feeling burnt out and losing motivation, is normal.  Everyone has doubts sometimes.  When it happens, we need to double up out focus on what is important to us, and what our goal really is.

Tomorrow is Friday, and this weekend is mother’s day.  See you tomorrow!
