In this episode of Fuel For Life, I talk about how you can avoid a potentially dangerous burnout in your life and get well on your way to achieve balance within your life. The big idea is this: If you don’t get rest, rest will eventually get you. Or as someone said, if you don’t take a sabbath, one will be imposed on you. I also share a personal story where I experienced a burn-out and what caused that in my life. I hope this episode will be helpful and encouraging to many.

In the show, I talk about four areas in your life that will suffer majorly because you are doing too much, are over-committed and have no buffer zone or margin in your life:

  1. Relationships
  2. Health
  3. Influence
  4. Effectiveness

I also give three practical steps on how to avoid a burn-out and achieve balance:

  1. Create clear non-negotiable items
  2. Learn to say no
  3. Accept the tension without anxiety
