Working in a product space requires knowing how to take a very complex problem and break it down into iterative chunks. Far too often, we’re so wrapped up in the problems we’re solving professionally, that we completely forget to introspectively look at ourselves and ask what problems in our own lives need solving. Burnout is real and worth addressing. But much like the dev process, understanding the “why” behind behavior leads to a more sustainable outcome.
This talk is a part of an ongoing conversation in life. We want to develop a framework and language to properly identify burnout and how we can work through it. Let’s take some time in this iteration of the conversation and talk about what it is, why it’s a problem, and how we can leverage tools at our disposal to help identify, address, and debug burnout.
