This post resonated, especially #2 and #3. And #1 is a great reminder -- thanks for sharing!

For me, on #4, one small unlock was just having simple way to ask, something like: 'Hey, feeling a bit burned out on X topic, could I get your help in driving it to completion?' Usually the other person gets it immediately and will jump in to help.

I just came out of a quite hectic Q1 and we’re thinking a lot: what leads to emotional frustration and burnout? What were the signs of it?

And like you said, there are always signs that tell it’s time to pause.

I analyzed my past experience and saw that short 2-3 day trips is what helps me to fill in the battery while taking longer 7-10 days vacations every quarter.

Thanks for sharing your experience.
