Careerism can lead to burn-out

I know.

I worked for about 6 years, post-Ivey MBA, in large organizations.  Not a great “fit”, as they say.

Hugh MacLeod gives some career advice for coasting franchise executives.

That’s what happens when you’ve sold your soul, exist to get the next paycheck and your job becomes ‘not to get fired’. Pretend your interested, show up to the meetings and hopefully find meaning elsewhere in your life.

A better solution is to find meaning in everything you do, everyday- even if it means a pay cut.

Try to live as authentic of a life as you can.
