A manager recently mentioned that he had been researching ‘burn-out’ on the internet and believed he was suffering from most of the symptoms. His question was whether or not he should be going to the doctor and seeking help, with one possible option being medication.
I recently read a stream of social media posts criticising others for complaining about an event. Others chose to ignore the negativity and stress the positives of the event. It struck me that there will always be dissenters whatever the situation, we will never all agree!
One of my favourite sayings has been “luck is the crossroads where opportunity and preparation meet”. Lucky has been a label I’ve given myself to reflect a habitual pattern of thinking optimistically. But of course, in reality life ebbs and flows.
