No Net Solutions' Andy Janning joins us for this episode of Fitxec, discussing, of all things, burnout in your career. Andy calls it the silent killer of motivation -- of any kind. And, yet, when it comes to corporate America, we treat it like the storyline in the movie Fight Club -- nobody wants to talk about it. Essentially, it's addressing mental health.
Just as much as maintaining your body's fitness is important in boosting your career and life, mental health is on another level of importance. It's where everything begins. It can affect your job, your personal life, your health, and so much more. So what can we do about this issue? Well, Andy gives us his well-researched rundown on burnout, his personal experience with it (his vasectomy story is an instant classic), his remedies to avoid it, and many more nuggets of Grade A advice.
To close our talk, Andy touches on an interesting term he learned about called "30-Year Goggles" -- which is simply fascinating and may change the way you look at life from now on. It did for me. So enjoy our chat and let us know your thoughts on burnout and how you handle it.
