So, I am definitely a checklist person. I love to make lists and then check things off. This is a great attribute to getting things done, but on the flip side, looking back, I tend to loose a lot of the moment and live life moving from one thing to the next.
Now you might think this is a little too much but I found I need to schedule my fun time. I actually take out a calendar and look over the next year and schedule times for enjoyment, unwinding, regrouping, and times I just kickback and do nothing. I have to look ahead and say, okay, over the next few months I am going to be super busy, or I am not taking events on these days or at least events my staff can handle without me.
This process helps me with a couple of things. First, when I am getting a little burnt out or over worked, I have something to look forward to and secondly, I shouldn't get burnt out because I have planned times that I know I will be able to recharge.
Are you a "planner" like me? Try planning some recharge time as well. It may just help you stay in the career long term while others just get stuck in burn out.
