Stop giving 100% (That's why you're burned out.)

Musing for:

Stop giving 100%

You wouldn’t sprint a mile like you would speed through 100 meters.

You wouldn’t run a marathon the way you’d run a 5k.

If you try to give 100% all day every day, you’ll burn out.

Employees who are asked to give 90% tend to outperform those who are asked to give 100%.

Sometimes, you will be in a season where you need to give 100%. When that happens, you’ll need some energy reserves to draw on. If 100% has been your standard, you won’t make it through the push.

Living your life at 85% or 90% isn’t “quiet quitting.”

It’s sustainable living.

And it gets the best results in the long run.
