Prevent Burnout to be Effective

An important component of being effective is connecting to yourself.  Know that your mind is fried and that you need to walk away from the computer for awhile and get some perspective.  I’m not sure who said it, but I love the expression, "When your mind is tired, work your body.  When your body is tired, work your mind."  You do, however, need to listen to the signals your body sends you. Unplugging doesn’t mean getting more coffee.

Proposal Expert and awesome blogger Laura Ricci says, "Burnout is a biologic reality, not a psychological weakness." Read her post about burnout for the prevention and cure.


  • I really like that concept of exercising the mind or body, depending on which is tired. I find that when my brain feels fried, a simple walk restores me. Likewise, when I’m physically exhausted, sitting and reading for awhile is very restful.
