My name is Maxim and I'm leading a small software development agency in Belarus. For almost two years I worked for 10-14 hours daily on multiple projects simultaneously. This led to burnouts and periods of deep depression. There were even times when I was so emotionally drained and felt aggression to everything and everyone.
So, after a long streak of burnouts, I decided to 'tame' myself. I read a lot about self-reflection, self-analysis, and mindfulness. I even wrote questions on Reddit about self-reflection best practices here
. But there is so much information about self-reflection methods that after 3-4 posts my head was blown up. From this 'information bomb,' i created simple rules that I'm following on daily basis. Of course, burnout is not fully evadable, but I feel like my life quality improved drastically.
I wanted to share these rules to help you become better yourself.
