Hello and Welcome to the April issue of the OkayNowWhat Newsletter!

Spring is "SUPPOSED" to be a time of feeling rejuvenated and more energetic. Yet you may be feeling more beaten down than brimming with energy. You are holding on by your fingertips for the end of the school year to arrive. Too many mornings are a struggle to marshal the motivation to go into work, and your stamina is completely depleted before the day is over. What you are struggling in overcoming is the feeling of being burned out.

The feeling of being burned out can take many forms. Common experiences include:

  • High level of stress that morphs into anxiety
  • Chronic (not episodic) fatigue (physical, emotional, and mental)
  • Overwhelmed by challenges (some that previously were not difficult to overcome)
  • Distraction or loss of focus and concentration
  • Lack of motivation
  • Loss of interest in both/either work or personal pursuits
  • Being undervalued, unrecognized, and criticized for things for which you are not responsible
  • Poor or inconsistent management
  • Clash of values with supervisors or employer
  • Inability to control outcomes/difficulty in meeting expectations (objectives are difficult and goals are hard to achieve).

Sound like just a normal day of the week for you?

After over 30 years working in corporate training, sales enablement, management and having worn the hats of; corporate employee, entrepreneur, author, academic, keynote speaker, and youth sports coach and mentor, I am now adding to my roster of jobs - business coach.  While I still maintain the original businesses (www.zahnconsulting.com and www.workshop360.biz), I am now adding www.okaynowwhat.biz.  It is through this new offering that I will assist new entrepreneurs, those considering becoming entrepreneurs, and business professionals who want to rekindle the spark they once had for the work they do - but have lost their passion over time.

I want to be of service - it is through that effort that the greatest rewards can be found and shared with others.  Having seen and experienced much in my career from many different sides of business relationships, I want to share it with others and provide the learning to help others accomplish their goals.

Together, we CAN achieve great things.  Working collaboratively and meeting each challenge as it arises and overcoming it until we feel completely confident in your ability to do so without guidance.  Working with your own private cheering section to lift you up when you stumble and provide you with guardrails and a metaphorical safety harness when trying new things to expand your reach and capability.  

If you are ready, so am I!  We can do this!  Click here to get started!

In keeping with the theme of Burn Out and how to avoid it from taking over your life (or, if you are experiencing it, how to begin to overcome it), it is important to remember that you ARE a professional, you ARE good at your work, you ARE a good person, and you ARE capable. All too often we hear from others, or even allow the silent voices in our heads that we create to dictate all that is wrong or how we could have/should have/ought to have done better or differently. It is important for us to turn down the volume of those thoughts and replace them with thoughts that inspire us and provide us with a reminder of who TRULY are and what we are capable of doing.  Therefore, I recommend you review this FREE resource: 50 Powerful Affirmations That Can Change Your Life (seffsaid.com). Each morning or each evening, read one and say it out loud to yourself. Start your day off right and/or end it with a reinforcement of all that you are providing the world!

Try it. You will find a treasure trove of positive energy and opportunity!
