Weblog Web Worker Daily knows the pain of on-the-job burnout and offers 7 suggestions for coping. For example:
Find a new project. Especially if you work in a team of substantial size, there’s usually room for individual workers to move around to different tasks or projects. If you ask for changes too regularly and never finish any projects, this turns into a way of shirking rather than rejuvenating. But sometimes, it’s the ideal way of dealing with burnout without setting bridges or income on fire.
The post also points out an online Burnout Self-Test to test your burnout potential. I’m in the midst of co-writing a book on the iPhone, the effects of which have garnered me a score of 48 and placed me in high risk burnout territory (oh noes!). Share your score along with how you cope with burnout in the comments.
