I'm pretty passionate about burnout. I've even done it myself a few times.
I've learned a few things along the way.
Burnout sucks. I should know, as a veteran of a couple of major ones.
Like most adverse experience, you can learn a lot from burnout if you approach it in the right way. I sure have. It’s part of the reason that I started my website - to document strategies and practices that help.
I like to write. I find it therapeutic, but it’s also a way to share super valuable information.
My current project has a working title of “The Software Developer’s Burnout Bible”. It’s going to be a resource that covers everything you need to know about recognising, preventing and recovering from burnout.
It would be AMAZING if you could take a few minutes out of your day to complete this short questionnaire about burnout and how it’s shown up in your life as a developer. All results are naturally confidential.
