How do you define being “burnt out”?
I found this fellow’s definition intriguing:
burning out isn’t just about work load, it’s about work load being greater than the motivation to do work
– Keith Yost
This sounds so very insidious.
I think that definition is missing one key thing: namely, that burn-out is, IMHO, caused by an excess of work–it is a form of exhaustion.
Laziness != burnout.
I had assumed a highly motivated individual here that wasn’t working more than 100hrs per week :)
