Engagement and Burnout: “You’ve got to give a little…”

To me, engaging means giving of myself to my work. I mindfully give but do not mindlessly lose myself in my work.

I work with conscious intention and know as Christina Maslach stated: “giving of yourself must be balanced with giving to yourself.”

There may be times of full engagement when you need to give’er but you also need times to throttle back and recharge, refresh, and rejuvenate or what may give way — is yourself.
