Burnout 2

November 15, 2015

Seeking answers to questions

  • What do I know? What I am knowledgeable about?
  • What skill do I have? What am I good at? What marketable skill do I really have?
  • What do I like to do? What interests me?

…and that elusive combination of the visual Venn diagram of the above questions wherein lies my career sweet spot.

And in my moments of vulnerability and depression, the answers I get are

  • I don’t really know anything, well enough. I know many things but I have no specialization.
  • I don’t really have any specific skills. Nothing really marketable. I have grown to my level of incompetence.
  • I don’t want to do anything. Nothing really interests me, nothing that can earn me money.

Where do I turn to to find answers, to find inspiration, to find motivation, to go beyond going though the motions in my career? Good sense tells me I will find all answers within me. But what if I don’t like those answers? What if I want to change those answers? Where do I get the strength to do that? Yeah yeah, that’s also all inside me. Oh fuck it !!!!! This whole ‘it’s all inside me’ thinking isn’t helping, even though it is most logical. The signs of burnout keep returning more frequently now.
