Burn Out? Become your own energy manager!

Many people drop out from the employment circuit. They can’t handle the pressure any longer. So many obligations are imposed. And preferably quickly. Because ‘time is money’. Everything or at least quite a lot is expressed in money terms. Often the value of a company is money. ‘Profit, profit, profit’. And a company making money - making a lot of money - is a good company. A company that takes care of its people at the expense of slightly less profit, is depreciated to ‘unprofitable’.

But times change. The bar is set so high and everything goes so fast, that people cannot do ‘even more’ as they do. They collapse by the dozen and so much for the profitable company …
So when you look at yourself:

  • Where do you connect with?
  • Where do you draw the line?
  • When is it good enough for you?
  • What if you’re burned down?
  • Or do you sound the alarm earlier?

Each person is responsible for his own energy management. What do I have left? And when will the light go off? Apply the brakes in good time. Take a rest in good time. Instead of putting much effort into supposedly relaxing by supposedly physical effort, you might be better off by turning off the light every now and then - completely disconnected being yourself and get your energy reserves back to the appropriate level.

That will a characteristic of the new age: that people are able to recharge themselves again, that people are able to perceive themselves again “Oh, I am running low on spare energy” and not notice this when it’s too late. Then you will be the manager of your own network.

Work when you have to work and in your spare-time: demand your own spare-time - regularly - if it’s needed to recharge your own unique battery. And the only one who knows what helps, is you, provided you disconnect yourself from what the media and your own little computer says how it should be done. You determine how it’s done. You will need to perceive.

Your body. How does it feel? “And how about my energy level”? Do I need to recharge or do I have some reserve left? And if you know you’re about to face a big effort, that you are going to do something that requires a lot of energy, then it’s up to you to recharge your reserve and don’t complain afterwards you’re exhausted and you have nothing left.
