Answer these questions to assess whether you're experiencing warning signs of burnout:

___ Do you dread getting up in the morning and going to work?

___ Do you find your coworkers more annoying and/or unlikable than ever before?

___ Do you resent people who love their work?

___ Do you completely lack the motivation to perform quality work and/or give 100 percent effort?

___ Do you find yourself unusually tired or fatigued, especially while at work?

___ Do you find that you're growing angrier at your boss or colleagues?

___ Do your coworkers criticize you for being too cynical or too negative?

___ Are your relationships with friends and family outside of work more strained because of your feelings about your work?

If you answered “yes” to three or more questions, you're in danger of experiencing burnout and you need to take proactive steps to rebound before your condition worsens.
