burnout

Paris, Oct 2018

2018 has been quite intense so far

Q1

Spent 28 days in Korea working on a 7/11 schedule

Q2

Left homie and joined alan at hyper-growth inflection

Q3

Packed ten years of life in London, moved to Paris and got married

So far, I’ve travelled a total of 57,576 km or 1.5x around the world including >1hr of walking each day and the year is far from over

Not going to lie, it wasn’t easy and now I’m paying up the consequences with a big fat burnout

a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands

It’s almost as if I’m addicted to this kind of situations. I even got a tattoo to remind myself that life is not about doing more, but doing better

What is better? Better is consciousness that time, unlike will, is finite

A wise man once said: happiness = reality - expectations

I need to learn how to curb my expectations from idea stage, remember that if I think it’s going to take 1 it will most likely take 4

My planning needs to be in balance of available resources, as a result I should never be in position to say, I’m busy or I’m tired

Not sure how I’ll get this done, maybe next year’s OKRs?
