New Year equals new challenges. I see a lot of people moving their priorities in 2023 from working hard to prioritising mental health. One of the reason is that working hard led them to nowhere.
They were overworked and underappreciated. This cost them a lot. The challenge with big companies is how to make the effort being worth it. Most of the companies are very bad at that.
Therefore, many employees saw this is a red flag.
They decided to prioritise themselves.
The best analogy I have for this is the flying with a plane metaphor.
When you fly, you get some safety instructions and one of them is, in case of decompression, you should first put the oxygen mask on yourself before you help other people.
This is a great example of your life too. If you want to be productive and help others, you must first start doing that for yourself.
Go now and create the best year for you. Plan not only hard work but also balance and relaxation time.
