Sunday Firesides: You’re Not Burned Out, You’re Bored

It’s hard not to open a book or scan a news site without hearing about burnout. Workers are burned out. Parents are burned out. Everyone is burned out. As the word denotes, and it’s popularly conceived, burnout is a function of being overextended, overwhelmed, and overtaxed. It’s a function of too much. Too much work. Too much pressure. And yet, statistically, we’re doing less than ever, not more. We work a little less than we did fifty years ago, and a lot less than a century and a half back. ...

Sunday Firesides: The Upwards Fall of Adulthood

The age-old story of Adam and Eve can be read on a variety of levels. One of the most interesting is as a metaphor for maturation. In the beginning, the pair are innocent, like children. With minimal effort on their part, and little awareness of how it happens, all of their needs are met. It’s girls who begin puberty first, and it’s Eve who is first drawn to the fruit from the tree of knowledge. Adam, as boys often are in early adolescence, is at first oblivious to the fruit’s enticement...

Sunday Firesides: Don’t Define Yourself By What You’re Not

Ask any graphic designer or architect, and they’ll tell you that, much to their chagrin, clients have a much easier time expressing what they don’t like about a draft or mock-up than conveying what they’d rather have it look like instead. Individuals often evince this same dynamic in designing the architecture of their lives. “I don’t want to be like everybody else. I don’t want a 9-5 job. I don’t want an ordinary life.” Perfectly understandable. But how would you describe the extraordinary lif...

Podcast #753: Take Back the Weekend

Do you ever get to feeling kind of down, dejected, and anxious come Sunday evening? People refer to this phenomenon as the “Sunday Night Blues,” and it’s a common experience. You may have chalked it up to rueing the fact that your fun and restful weekend is over, and that you have yet another workweek ahead. But my guest would say that your Sunday night sadness may also be rooted in the feeling of regret — the regret that you didn’t put your weekend to good use, that it wasn’t restful and...

Sunday Firesides: As I Am Now

It’s something of a cliche to observe that Westerners typically avoid thinking about death, and live their lives less meaningfully, and urgently, as a result. Less commonly explained are the subtle ways this avoidance takes place, beyond simply averting one’s eyes while driving past a funeral home. Our denial of death can be seen in our addiction to the news cycle. We stay hooked from the fear of missing out on something important . . . none so much as the breaking story that science has finall...

Sunday Firesides: Good Times Are Not Around the Corner (And That’s Great News!)

“As soon as this work project gets done.” “As soon as we get more settled in.” “As soon as I’m done planning this event.” “As soon as the kids are older.” How commonly do we offer these postponements to personal urges and others-issued invitations to take a trip, make a move, or simply hang out? “Things are busy right now,” we tell ourselves. “But in a week/month/year, my calendar will be much freer. Good times are right around the corner!” There is a bit of truth to this. Different seasons in ...

Your Three Selves and How Not to Fall Into Despair

Who am I supposed to be? What am I supposed to do with my life? These are existential questions that individuals ask themselves throughout their lives.
