Feeling undervalued and overwhelmed in your professional life?
As someone who has navigated the murky waters of burnout, I've learned that self-advocacy isn't just about speaking up—it's about recognizing your worth. Let's talk about why asserting your needs can reignite passion in your work and how it's a game-changer for your emotional well-being.
Many of us have been conditioned to bel...
We humans spend much of our time lying outrageously to ourselves about ourselves and our own capabilities, twisting the data to match our beliefs.
Which would be fine, except in burnout, when our beliefs suck. Specifically, we see limitations where none exist.
Let's take a fresh look, and open up an exciting new world of possibility simply by changing our perceptions.
The Myth of N...
I want to let you know how different your life will look after burnout. But if I told you, you wouldn't believe me ;)
So instead I'll show you WHY it's going to be different. And you can work out the details for yourself.
I would (pre-burnout) have loved to be invincible. Sadly, I was shaking at the knees with raw vulnerability instead. Invincible would have been SO convenient and face-saving.
Many of us disposed to burnout secretly give invincibility a try, even knowing it's a dud. Its apparent protective quality is so seductive.
Unfortunately, it's just part of the path to burnout, as eventually a thing will happen that...

Sensitivity and hypersensitivity are common for people experiencing burnout.
In fact, these days, they're just common for people!
If you feel overly sensitive when you are under duress, anxious and living on adrenaline - that makes sense, doesn't it? But don't worry, this will change through burnout recovery, as you build greater energy and resilience, lose your current pessimism and calm your nervous s...
If your goal's lying in the weeds, it's never too late to re-start it and be your own hero after all. Here's how.
Chances are it's fear of failure (or a similarly unwelcome emotion) that stopped you.
That would be why 91% of people fail at goals.
But if you could handle the suck of not knowing how you will succeed, until you do... If you were OK with failing hard and often and feeling disap...
We live in uncertain times - Covid, economy, politics - and it's important to notice how you feel about that, and how it affects your decision-making.
Success thinking dwindles whenever we lose confidence, but at such times it's more important than ever to focus on your goals. A bold attitude shines brighter when others are in retreat. Your commitment and performance will stand out from the crowd.

You may find that under chronic stress your brain goes a bit wonky and starts feeding you suboptimal thoughts about life. That could be due to fatigue, distraction, overwhelm...etc.
Remember that your thoughts at such moments are not facts - false beliefs, exhaustion and memories can muddle your thinking - but you CAN find your way back to more helpful states.
This was Dex's experience during his own burnout...
Type A super-achievers can be rather obsessed with being the one who can fix every problem, and whose work ethic and performance are top shelf. But this ultimately contributes to burnout!
If that's you, burnout recovery is a gift that keeps on giving. You will learn a gentler way to be brilliant and deliver your best work to the world, that gives you room to breathe. You need NOT sacrifice career greatness for peace o...
Are you feeling on shakier ground since Covid?
Did you experience an ongoing shift in your world view?
Many people appear to have lost confidence in the world since Covid, and certainly in my coaching practice I see people's optimism suppressed.
Planet Money tells us that consumer confidence is still way down.
Let's examine why we still feel less safe than we used to, how this plays out in ...
There are important and revealing questions to ask yourself about your ambition, or lack of it.
Why do/don't you feel driven to achieve something?
What itch are you trying to scratch?
Is your ambition driven by scarcity or abundance?
Learn about the 3 types of ambition, and discover when and how it's easiest to kickstart new goals, if you are currently in burnout.
Towards year end is the perfect time to plan for next year. What do you want more of? Less of? What would a perfect year look like?
Because if we set a direct course, we're infinitely more likely to be gratified than if we dwell in fear and doubt, not daring to set any firm goal.
Silently backburnering your year before it even starts is a mark of the defeat and hopelessness that come with burnout. Don't...
As Thanksgiving, school break, the festive season and the new work year descend upon us - How can we set ourselves up for ease and enjoyment, rather than increasing bouts of pressure and irritation?
Be the host you want to be - focus on enjoyment, delegate tasks, and create a welcoming atmosphere at your home.
Be the guest and companion you want to be - letting all your own stress (and dread?) go beforehand and f...
Many people have been feeling a bit destabilised in these changing times - more exposed, vulnerable and fragile. Less in control. Especially those who tend towards chronic anxiety and burnout.
Today we look at the perfect storm that got us here, and I share some practical exercises for you to self-right when you feel this way.
Coaching is a process of restoring confidence, balance and energy, but you can start no...
One of the least fun(!) parts of burnout can be how it affects our financial security - perhaps because we're not selling, earning, saving, or spending in our most rational and effective way. Or because we're suspended from work, off sick or between jobs. Or simply because the economy has turned down and we're feeling the pinch.
Not everyone in burnout has financial problems - but if you do, it can have a pr...
The first step in burnout recovery is being clear about what problem you're trying to solve. Then step 2 is finding an effective cure.
Many people come to me with what they THINK might be burnout, because my speciality is executive and professional burnout.
They tend to have four main questions for me:
Is this burnout? If so, why am I in it? Why have I been unable to fix it?
And when they hear that ...
Sometimes in life, when we hit a low point in our own energy and start seeing problems everywhere, we feel like the world is against us.
It's understandable in our modern culture AND it can be a hard spot to bounce back from.
So today, let's take a look at why that might happen in burnout and the things we CAN do about that. There are plenty of those!
Burnout Recovery is a simple and reliable ...
