Listen Now: 6 Careers Guaranteed To Burn You Out
Counting down the days to retirement? Your career could be to blame for your burnout.
There are multiple factors that bring you to the end of your work rope. That includes not making progress, not enough staff to help and the pressure to always be present and checking in, even when off the clock.

Another example: emergency responders; long hours, a changing schedule and high emotions can take their toll, not to mention lack of sleep.
