The energy reboot for ambitious women

Reality Check

So yeah, work is important to you. It gives you purpose, a sense of fulfilment and a structure to develop and be creative. You probably spend much of your time on the job, educating yourself and staying on top of the latest developments in your professional field.

Lately though you have felt tired. Very tired. Continuously tired. It’s as if your battery just doesn’t charge anymore. On top of that, you’ve been feeling aches and pains in your body which cannot be explained. The inspiration and idealism with which you started your work is long gone. You wanted to make a difference in the world. Now it seems all you do is manage egos, do politics or produce data to feed organizational systems. This is not you! You want your energy back. You want your sense of purpose back.

Recognise any of this?

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Albert Einstein

So how long are you going to keep this up?

If you continue down this path, you will deplete the energy in your battery and end up in a full blown burn out. Being burnt out means being sick. This means you’ll have to take a break from work to go on sick leave. You’ll not be able to take care of your children the way you want to and you’ll never have the same energy levels again, ever. This will affect your career, your family and your personal happiness in life. Your fatigue, your aches and pains are gentle wake up calls. You can wait for the big wake up call, although that one is usually much more dramatic. The choice is yours.
