Burnout - avoid it!
Dick Biggs, a magazine publisher, speaker and author, once advised a friend, “Burn brightly without burning out.” It’s important for every leader to pace himself/herself.
It helps to keep life in perspective. I have to keep reminding myself of four things:
• I’m not invincible: I can get sick, grow weary, burn out.
• I’m not immortal: I can die.
• I’m not indispensable: the seminary and kingdom will go on without me.
• I’m not an island: I need friends and helpers.
