You've been there: struggling to wake up every day, dragging your heels to work, barely engaged. You're on the brink of burnout.
Burnout happens when your work feels like a series of orders, when you feel like your work is not your own. The reasons are complex. You feel stuck. Is there anything you can do to make a change?
Brink of Burnout is an interactive story about taking back control of your work. It's about finding your agency.
- Marxian Alienation And Web Development: This short blog post from web developer Heydon Pickering defines what's really behind work burnout. As you can probably tell from the title, it is political. So be warned.
- Digital Minimalism: This book by Cal Newport dives into practical ways you can reclaim your attention, your relationships, and even your down time from screens.
- Connection Club: We're all in the middle of a pandemic. In true tech fashion, there's a product for that! Connection Club is a paid community by Kat Vellos, UX Designer and speaker. Connection Club is about slowing down and focusing on authentic collections with people you care about.
