Burnout is a very real concern in today’s fast-paced workplace and I want to make sure you have the tools to spot and overcome it. It’s critical that you take some time over the next couple of weeks to recharge your battery before hitting the ground running again in January. Remember: self-care is not selfish.
I hope you have an awesome Christmas, Kwanzaa or that you had a great Hanukkah. Whatever you celebrate, I hope it brings you joy. If you have any suggestions for the podcast for next year, tweet me @RonKitchens on Twitter or send me a message. Happy New Year, we’ll be back in your inbox in 2019!
