Working for Steve Jobs was no picnic, but his former assistant offers some tips that can help us all feel better and experience less burnout:
- Remember that your manager’s job isn’t to make you feel good. Challenging you to do your best is. However, if you are working hard and being unfairly criticized, speak up. And ask for additional guidance or training that may help.
- Our wellbeing drives our success. Your greatest wealth is your physical and emotional health. Take time to feed your mind and body.
- Understand that doing well and being well are not mutually exclusive. It is important to find a sustainable path to success in work and life.
- Following your heart and intuition is more likely to lead to both success and happiness.
- When leaders ignore the wellbeing of their workers, they create a wellness gap that inevitably leads to burnout.
