PM Burnout

It’s a well-known fact that the role of project management is filled by a unique type of person. We have the ability to juggle every ball, see into the future, and always put others first…or more appropriately, put ourselves last. We are the first ones in, the last ones out, and if needed, work all night to make sure everything will run smoothly the next day. But at what cost?

During this mini-note, we will explore what it means to find a healthy balance. What warning signs are staring us in the face and what options we have to address them. The PM position should not require a loss of work/life balance and it’s our role as a community to redefine that perception. After all, life is too short to be miserable. I should know; I was once that person.
