Coach Jeff Grant's Digest 37: Burnout


Coach Jeff Grant

May 29 · Issue #37 · View online

My digest is a collection of inspirational and instructional resources I find interesting and wish to share, including my latest content. To save you time, I pen a quick preview & highlight the key parts to check out.

This issue covers burnout, offering a few articles tied to the WHO’s recent recognition of burnout as a medical condition and a few articles as subtle support to help prevent occupational burnout. Skim and dive in to whatever grabs your attention, and feel free to join me for the June challenge, as well as a weekend retreat sometime. Wishing you all the best! – Jeff

One of my main goals in May was to reduce digital time, via my own Digital Detox Challenge – doing my best to take my own medicine! I broke a lot of habits that opened up TIME to be present and to reevaluate tech dependency and addiction. The simplest and most helpful change was to replace my phone as an alarm clock with a device that, get this, is only an alarm clock. Keeping my phone out of the bedroom removed 80% of the wasted, low-value pre-sleep and first-awake surfing, social media and email time. If you did the challenge and made a helpful change, please reply and share with me. I’d love to hear from you.
I had the honor this month as well of offering the keynote speech at the Risk-!n 2019 Conference in Basel, Switzerland. I spoke on resilience, fear, and my mental tool of hoping for the worst. Excellent conference and such a fulfilling opportunity to share stories and concepts with a friendly audience. I’m looking forward to booking more of these inspirational talks in the future, as well as continuing my focus on Burnout prevention retreats.
Swimming and other outdoors micro-adventures are continuing, building up to our Bögeyman Ultra event in August. This included crossings of the Vierwaldstättersee and Lauerzersee with a full camping load, several days of gear testing and adversity training, and lastly, a cold, wet night on a mountain, learning how to get ultra light camping wrong! This isn’t the most comfortable sport, but it’s full of captivating moments and immersion in nature … I love it.
