Hey young professional
Everything peachy at work...
You really put your back into it at work. As an eager young professional, you tackle just about anything. Projects, extra responsibilities, after-work drinks, you say ‘yes’! You enjoy full weeks with challenging tasks in which you can improve yourself. You are always cheerful and highly motivated. Your colleagues think you’re an independent mind who’ll make anything work.
...Sour at home
But secretly, you often have feeling of blind panic. That huge load of responsibilities are a heavy burden. You want everything to be perfect. Your workweeks are crammed. So you put in extra hours at nights, or even during the weekends. Compliments? You only hear what needs to be improved. Relaxing and having a good time with friends? Who’s got time for that? You cannot make it stop.
To be honest, you’re knackered.

Is this you?
Of course, you don’t want to come across as the clueless rookie. And the hard work really does pay off. You have a good eye for quality. But the perfectionism never ends. Let’s have a call if the situations below ring a bell for you:
When deadlines and performance moments approach, your stress levels rise accordingly. You really dread them, because you’re never satisfied with the end result. Long nights for you.
Unhappy clients and colleagues is a thing to avoid at all costs. You can hear your clients and colleagues think: “See, we should never have let the rookie do it. They don’t know anything, yet.” Nightmare.
Every night, you work your bum off to make the best of it. You hate it, because this has happened time and again. You don't want it, you need a night off and let off some steam! But you must soldier on for now, or it’s going to end in disaster!
At nights, in bed, you’re trying to get a grip on everything that you’ve still got to do. But rest is miles away. You feel sad and tired. You tried to plan and manage this, and it failed again. You don’t know how to solve this anymore!
Prevent a burn-out
How long do you want to be lived by your work? You’re booking weekend trips to recharge, but you haven’t tackled the source. You get some rest when a deadline has passed, but the next one is already in sight. You can feel yourself slipping already. The built-up stress in your body is starting to take its toll. Either physically or mentally. A short weekend of recharging is no longer enough. You’re heading full-speed towards a bumper stop called ‘burn-out’.
