To my question, what he is doing now, he replied, "I'm not doing much. I'm hunting a little in winter and working in a sawmill in the summer.As I suggested in the introduction, burnout can be a positive experience. Burnout may not result in you giving up your profession or breaking a stick. I speak from my own experience.If you or someone in your area is burnt out right now, you have to remember that at the end of the tunnel you will find not only light - all the rest of your life is just waiting for you to truly experience it. The lesson you will learn from your burnout can make your future even more joyful than your past.Even high-performance individuals who have burned up and resigned can return, play life and win again! So head up - even if you burned out, you still have hope.
