What You'll Discover In This Episode:
Crispy around the edges.
It’s how I prefer some of my favorite breakfast foods. Pancakes. Waffles. Sunny-side up eggs. Hash browns. Bacon. All are extra delicious (and in my opinion cooked to perfection) when their centers are soft and their edges crispy.
You know what’s not best crispy around the edges?
You and me.
It’s a great analogy Doctor Of Osteopathic Medicine Errin Weisman uses to describe people who are headed for burn out.
She would know. Errin hit rock bottom early in her career and bounced in and out of burn out several times. During those encounters with burnout, she felt empty, exhausted, and cynical about everything and everyone else around her.
Errin had it all and yet, she was the only one not to see it because she was blinded by the crippling fog of burnout.
Over time, Errin was able to pull herself up by her own bootstraps by making different choices in her life. She slowed down, prioritized herself, and created a schedule that works for her - one in which she refuses to start work until 10am, even if that means calling in that day.
Errin took charge of her mental health and is a new person these days. She’s now in the business of coaching others to respect their guardrails so they can prevent burnout, heal, and live fulfilling business and personal lives without overdoing it.
If you regularly don’t have time for a break, healthy meal, the gym, or quality family time, you’re already crispy around the edges and it’s time to turn off the heat!Tune into this week’s episode of Productivity Straight Talk, in which I sit down with Errin Weisman, DO to discuss how you can prevent burnout or go from burnt out to badass as Errin did.
