Let's say that you're at a conference and you see a prospective client you'd like to talk to in order to begin nurturing the relationship. Or maybe you're at your child's sports game, at happy hour down the street from your office, or at a social event and really wish to speak with someone you see there.

Do you struggle with how to break the ice...sometimes for so long that you psych yourself out and miss the opportunity to connect? Or do you throw caution to the wind, decide you're gutsy enough to strike up a conversation with a total stranger, only to feel your stomach drop from the look of inconvenience and/or discomfort on their face after just a few words from you?

“There’s an ingrained mythology around startups that not only celebrates burn-out efforts, but damn well requires it. It’s the logical outcome of trying to compress a lifetime’s worth of work into the abbreviated timeline of a venture fund.”

David Hanson, Creator of Ruby on Rails/Founder and CTO at Basecamp

A Harvard Medical School study found that 96% of senior leaders feel somewhat burned out, and a third describe their burnout as extreme.

“I don’t know if we’re going to make it. And there are a lot of others around here who have the same feeling. We’re all demoralized.”
