I decided to revise the format of the show two days ago when this was recorded. I’m going to try to include helpful tips or advice when discussing difficult or depressing stuff. I’ve always been personal development focused, so this feels more in line with my values. The show is also going to get shorter unless the episode commands more time. I’m currently aiming for about a twenty minute runtime but we’ll see what is reasonable given the content.
I’ve been feeling increasingly burned out from the pandemic and other stressors in my life so this is only the second time in three years I’ve produced an episode the day before and posted it either the evening before or the morning of. So far I’ve hit every deadline and I intend to keep doing that even as I explore other formats for the work I produce.
So today we’re talking about strategies for managing burnout during a pandemic with Billie.
