If we want to be high achievers, we have to work really hard; if we work too hard, we’ll get burned out and fail to achieve much of anything. Contradictory?
Not exactly. It’s about perception. Most people think that working hard burns a person out. Yet, it’s almost guaranteed that there is something you can point to in your own life that you enjoy so much that you will spend a great deal of time doing it without burning yourself out. You’ll do it when you’re tired, even exhausted, and even when you don’t have the time to do it. Yet, you don’t suffer from mental burnout. If your team members got that high at work, they wouldn’t suffer burnout, either.
