One helpful tip per day:)



How to prevent burnout is a topic we've been focusing on for a long time, and this article by Andrew Wulf is unique in that his advice looks at how to prevent burnout in such a long term dimension throughout his career. Looking beyond the present to the longer term, this article is particularly relevant for those just starting working:

  1. I don't do overtime, other than the occasional end of project time.
  2. I try to find a place that is compatible with how I like to work.
  3. Don't assume you always need to do the same thing over and over in the same industry, or even worse never leave your first job and just stick around.
  4. Sometimes you have to just stop and do something because you want to.
  5. Unless you own the company or have some massive amount of options or stock, do not be afraid to leave.
  6. You can't always start your own company but it's a great option to let you see what having to worry about business is like; often you get a new perspective on what an employer has to care about.
  7. Don't fear new technology or changes in the industry.
