The Preventing Burnout IQ Matrix explores how to avoid getting emotionally, mentally and physically burnt out. However, if you do end up suffering from burnout, then the map also explores how to recover from a burnout episode. Burnout is of course not the same as stress. Stress is a temporary condition that we can learn to manage more effectively. Burnout on the other hand comes about when we experience prolonged and unrelenting (somewhat uncontrolled) stress that occurs over an extended period of time. Unable to effectively deal with this stress the body fatigues and the mind begins to disengage from all work activities. That is when burnout takes hold. This map will however help you to avoid the pitfalls of burnout by providing you with various guidelines and suggestions that will allow you to manage your life and responsibilities in far more effective ways.
The first branch of the Preventing Burnout IQ Matrix explore what burnout is all about including how it affects us on a mental, physical and emotional level. The second branch continues this exploration by breaking down the causes of a burnout and the various symptoms that accompany burnout. These first two branches provide a good foundation to help you gain a thorough understanding of what it means to experience burnout.
The third branch of this IQ Matrix looks at burnout prevention. Here you will find various guidelines and suggestions that will help you to avoid experiencing burnout. However, if you do happen to fall into the burnout trap, then the final branch of this map shows you how to recover from a burnout episode.
Familiarizing yourself with these guidelines and applying the various principles into your life will help you to effectively manage your time, energy and priorities in order to avoid falling into the burnout trap.
