But gamequitters is cool, so
I made one anyway"
Pushing too hard: You should push yourself too hard, it shows you your limits and then hopefully you raise those limits and then look back later and laugh at your previous, weaker self.
That's one of those things that might sound nice, but it IS possible to push one's self too hard. And too hard is just that: Too hard. An eighty hour work week (as an extreme example) might be sustainable for .5% of the population, but for every other person it will exact a toll more significant than the benefits.
But you're right in that preparing for occupational stresses and hazards should be seen as an inevitability and planned for. Lots of people wait until it hits them (or well after that point) to do something about it.
Slacking off is one way to deal with it, I suppose.
What do you guys do to prevent the dreaded "burnout"?
How do you know if you are pushing yourself too hard?
What do you do if you feel burnout coming?
The further south a node, the more toward the front it ought to be. This will improve appearance substantially.
