Burnout by Contextual Switch

Since becoming a manager about a year ago, I’ve found that in any given week, I cycle through the following emotions: Overwhelmed with too many things to do and not enough time to do them Immense, extreme pride in my team Annoyed by tasks/myself/other people Calm (when I’ve completed my to-do list) Way in over my head with responsibilities Excited about how many fun and important things I’m getting to work on Like I want to get in bed for 5 years Love and gratitude for my coworkers Like I’m the worst manager/employee ever Like I might actually have something to say and teach people — Sophie Shepherd: http://sophieshepherd. »
