Here are five warning signs that indicate you are on the path to burning out or, in case you have not noticed, are burnt out already.
1. HAVE TROUBLE CONCENTRATING
If you have reached the point where you are struggling to focus on your regular tasks, then you are facing a burnout. Lack of concentration can lead to risks of missing deadlines or making critical mistakes that could affect your work performance.
2. HAVE NOTHING CREATIVE TO CONTRIBUTE
Cannot remember when was the last time you did something creative or used a different approach? It probably is because you are in the midst of a burnout. You feel your creative output will not be valued and hence there is no use of it.
3. INCREASED PESSIMISM & IRRITABILITY
This is when you begin to see your glass as half empty. You begin to feel negative towards your work and that there is no point in accomplishing anything anymore. Just thinking about your work makes you irritable and fills you up with negative emotions.
