LEARNING WHY TO CHANGE IS A FIRST STEP TO CHANGE
THE CHALLENGE OF SPRINTER WOMEN
In their 20s and 30s, many professional women seek to grab their chances of success. But just when their career reaches a top point, they start feeling exhausted. This is exactly because of their immense effort that leaves no room for failure. Women, such as yourself, can benefit from learning that life is a marathon, not a sprint. And this learning involves redefining your ways of working.
AS A SPRINTER WOMAN, YOU RISK BURNOUT
Because high-achieving women are very passionate about their work, they often don’t realize that they work too much and that they put an enormous pressure on themselves. They rarely see burnout coming. Once it kicks in, burnout expresses itself in the feelings of exhaustion and tiredness, a lack of interest and motivation, and feelings of cynicism and ineffectiveness. It affects both productivity and health, happiness, and relationships.
Turn your work into a marathon,
not a sprint.
YOU NEED TO REMAIN ENGAGED
Work engagement is a key not only for preventing and curing burnout, but also for being able to manage it all. When you are engaged with your work, you succeed in expressing yourself through it. Your state of mind is characterized by vigor, dedication, and absorption. And though you can feel tired, your tiredness seems positive because it is associated with accomplishments.
YOU NEED TO USE RESOURCES
Burnout occurs when you have many work demands but have little resources at your disposal. To excel and become engaged with your work, you need to actively seek resources that will make your work easier. Even if you are asked to do the impossible, you can do it if you proactively ask for support from your colleagues and supervisors, if you seek feedback, or if you ask to be coached.
YOU NEED TO USE YOUR STRENGHTS
Like every woman, you have a set of strengths that are unique to you. If you proactively use your strengths at work, your work will become easier and more fulfilling – exactly because it will rely on the attributes that allow you to perform at your personal best. Using one’s strongest characteristics is one of the best tools for aligning the job to your personal uniquenesses.
YOU NEED TO FIND A MEANING
Apart from being engaged, you should succeed to derive meaning from your work. You need to feel as if you are contributing to something worthwhile, to feel valuable and valued, and to be able to both give and receive from your work. That is why it is often said that increasing a sense of meaningfulness at work is one of the most potent ways to increase productivity and satisfaction.
YOU NEED TO CRAFT YOUR JOB
Work starts being messy when others dictate what you have to do and how you have to do it. But this doesn’t have to be this way. You can craft your job yourself so that it better suits your skills and interests. You can reorganize your tasks, their scope, and the way you think about them. And you can change the nature of your work relationships. All of this refreshes your work and helps you reenergize it.
YOU NEED TO CRAFT YOUR LEISURE
When you work a lot, you often forget to take the time to yourself. It soon becomes harder to make oneself do something enjoyable than something unenjoyable, and this way leisure activities never end up on schedule. But you cannot only work – this is the quickest way to exhaustion. To be happy and successful, you need to findtime for yourself.
