The Pandemic and the Burnout Epidemic

In the United States the COVID-19 pandemic is slogging away, now entering its sixth month, making it the perfect time for Brad and Steve to discuss one of their favorite topics: burnout. On this episode of The Growth Equation Podcast, the pair dive into why so many of us are feeling burnt out at this time—from lack of temporary boundaries (e.g., work time v. family time) to lack of physical boundaries (e.g., lack of office v. away) to simple lack of control (e.g., ability to return to “normal”). Fortunately, they offer tools and frameworks to combat burnout, such as taking action, imposing routine, vacillating between stress and rest, and finding purpose.
