Screw The Nine to Five

It's that time of year, isn't it?

That time where the whole damn internet seems to be flooded with talk of goal-setting, goal-getting, and reflecting back on the year that was.

And while I'm all for gaining perspective and planning for the year ahead - lawwwwd knows I love me some planning! - I also really dig learning HOW to do something properly rather than half-assing it.

Which is how I feel about goal-setting.

You see, I'm a big believer in figuring out what it is you want out of the coming year, but I never really sat down and gave it a ton of thought...let alone planned it all out.

I just sort of winged it.

I would usually either keep the goals to myself, or jot them down on a piece of paper that eventually got thrown out.

But this year we decided to do something different.

We decided to get calculated with our goals.

We flexed our imagination, came up with some scary (but in the best kinda way) goals we feel totally lit up about, and mapped out how we were going to achieve them.

That process alone has given us a level of clarity we didn't expect and has even led to a new exciting idea that is already in motion.

And it's not even 2015 yet!

One of the things Josh and I have realized over the past 3 years of running our business together is that sometimes? You gotta know your role.

That means, acknowledging that another person might be better than you at a particular task. And not only that, but realizing it's probably best you step aside and let them do their thang.

And while that might be difficult to admit or recognize, there can be true power in owning your purest strengths and allowing others to step into theirs.

But wtf. How do you do that?

Well in this week's episode we are breaking down 3 easy ways to discover your most powerful strengths and own them so you can become the best, most influential version of you.

You know that feeling you get when you can't seem to wake up?

Or you don't WANT to wake up?

Or you don't feel like being social?

Or you can't seem to muster one creative thought...let alone come up with a witty blogpost, podcast, video, or even newsletter?

Or you just want to curl up in a ball, not think about work at all, eat bad-for-you food, and crush an entire season of Sons of Anarchy?

Helllloooooo Jax Teller!

No?

Just me?

Welcome to burnout, my friend.

Nearly every single webpreneur I've ever met has faced it at some point, including us.

In fact, I'm just now finally getting over that feeling.

I mean, after nearly 3 months of non-stop work creating and building Screw U plus balancing social obligations, business obligations, and trying to be a remotely caring wife, it was bound to happen.

And if I'm being honest, I felt it coming from a mile away...and yet I did nothing about it.

Ridiculous.

Now that I'm finally feeling back to normal I can see that me actively ignoring all those signs was one of the most detrimental things I could have done for myself.

Which is why I knew we just had to shoot a podcast on beating burnout.

Because honestly? It can take you down. Hard.

So if you'd rather avoid that and stay on your game, hit play or download this episode directly from iTunes or Stitcher.
