Burnout can be a deadly trap you don’t recognize until the damage is done, so what can you do to avoid it (and still be successful), how does perfectionism make it worse, and how do you find your “why” so you can push through tough times and criticism? 


What to Listen For

  • Introduction – 0:00
  • What are some obvious signs of burnout?
  • What is the biggest lie entrepreneurs and leaders tell themselves to keep pushing through burn out?


  • Be an Awesome Human – 12:47 
  • How do you edit your thoughts to help you be the best version of yourself?
  • What two questions can you ask yourself to edit your thoughts and stop your mind from sabotaging your work, relationships, and goals?
  • What does it mean to treat yourself with compassion and why do we ALL need to treat ourselves with more compassion?


  • Perfectionism is the Enemy of Completion – 31:00 
  • How can you reframe perfectionism so it doesn’t stop you from finishing what you start and putting your work out there for others to enjoy?
  • Why is it detrimental to your success to value every piece of criticism you receive?


  • Find your “why” and flourish in any job – 41:31 
  • Why is it important to know your “why” when it comes to long term success and fulfillment in any line of work?
  • What is emotional fitness, why is it just as important as physical fitness, and how do you develop it?


It’s easy to undervalue our physical and mental needs when pursuing ambitious goals. You can get lost in devoting countless hours to building a company and push aside physical exercise because it takes time away from the company. You can get lost in spending all of your free time at the gym and push aside quality sleep because “sleep is for the weak.” But we tend to forget the only reason we can do any of these things is because we have one precious life to work with.
