And when burnout happens, you are forced to invest time towards recovering that would otherwise be spent working on your goals. You need rest, and your body will get it, somehow. If that means getting sick or being so exhausted that you are forced to take time off, so be it. It’s how your body works.

My preference, as I’m sure is yours, would be to choose the times I work and play.

Yet most people struggle to find a healthy work-life balance. The mindset you need to be good at it runs contradictory to the world we live in. Smartphone in hand, it’s not an easy task to detach from all the things vying for your attention at any given moment, and to carve out enough space for leisure.
