Realizing that his wife was suffering from extreme burnout in her medical career, led Will Hahn down a path of helping professionals recognize and overcome burnout. Will researched all the medical literature relating to burnout and what he found was astonishing. Will found that there really wasn’t a lot of information in early 2011/2012 relating to burnout in the medical world. Desperate to help his wife and others suffering from burnout, he began to research. He read a lot, he talked with coaches, he studied what was working and what wasn’t. Ultimately, he determined burnout is not a one size fits all solution.
“It's not about sitting down and doing a couple of breath exercises. It's not, ‘Oh, just do 10 to 20 minutes of meditation every day.’ You're fine. You're good. The reality is we all need a very personalized solution.” - Will Hahn (Talking about burnout.)
There are everyday tools people can use to help with burnout. First, determine when you are most effective (that’s your prime time.) Take actionable steps to strategically plan your life. Give yourself a weekly review - What worked that week, what can you change, etc. And finally, be coachable. You need to take accountability so that you can be open to change. If you are suffering from imposter syndrome and feel that you’re not being transparent, you may need to seek professional help (e.g. a counselor or therapist) first.
“Dare to dream big, not just for yourself, but for the world that you can impact.” - Will Hahn
