The Burnout Manifesto (Seven Ways to Reignite your Career from Burnout)

Imagine a career with…

  • less stress and worry
  • more confidence in the steps you’re taking
  • the gratification from knowing that you’re making a difference.

Your time and self-worth are your most precious resources.

It’s time to get them off the “back-burner” and bring them into the game to create a career and life you’re passionate about.

To address this concern, I’ve created the Burnout Manifesto, 7 Ways to Reignite Your Career (and immediately love your job).

It was inspired by my own experience with job burnout, and also by the fact that 80% of American workers are dissatisfied with their jobs.

Are you or someone you care about one of them?

Are you ready to reignite your career?

If so, then this is for you.

What You’ll Find Inside

This manifesto is all about learning the keys to overcoming your burnout and immediately start loving your job.

You’ll get the easiest ways to keep going in Corporate and:

  • Maintain a career with less stress
  • Gain confidence in the next steps you’re planning in your career
  • Rejuvenate your current role
  • Get clear on what really inspires you
  • Create a path forward that integrates your role and your inspiration

Who this Manifesto is For

This is for anyone who wants to avoid dreading Monday mornings, losing sleep over the work week a head, and sacrificing your dreams of a fulfilling career.

Or if you..

  1. Said in the last week “I hate my job”
  2. Refer to work as “the Grind”
  3. Listen to the songs: Take this Job and Shove It or Workin’ 9 to 5, and it touches a nerve.
  4. Feel like you are a “hamster on a wheel” at the office.
  5. Ever tell your child, “Daddy/Mommy) has to go to work today,” versus “Daddy/Mommy) gets to go to work today”.
  6. Frequently respond to “How’s it going?” with “Another day, another dollar”.
  7. Feel like you’ve just been in a boxing match when the close of business rolls around.

    I’ve watched Ben go from burned out to enthused and what is especially fabulous is that he cares about others and wants to help them do the same thing!

      Thanks, Karyn. I actually lost sleep writing this manifesto but in the best possible way. It was enthusiasm (versus anxiety) that got me out of bed at 3 am early one morning to start.

      Awesome, Lynn. Tried to keep them simple. Please share with anyone you think can benefit. With 80% of Americans dissatisfied with their work there’s plenty of people that can!

    I have been enjoying your articles and how they contain such actionalble information and easy steps that anyone can do. Last week, another co-worker went down. Fortunately, he survived a stroke and is expected to fully recover. That’s the fifth one in the past 18 months. Your work is critical in today’s work environment, I will spread it around as much as possible.

      Sara, so sad to hear that news about your co-workers. Thanks for the vote of support, and we’ll work together so a career in Corp doesn’t have to be a health detriment.

    HI Ben,
    I think it is sad that we reach burn out before we realise things should be different. Hitting the wall is not the most pleasant wake up calls, but we should be so grateful that we have been prompted to change before it is too late.
    I think the next step as you mentioned is to be grateful that we firstly have had the wake up call, and we have the power to change.
    If nothing changes, then nothing changes!
    Cheers, Jo
