Prioritize
Fitting things into categories is a necessary part of being effecting and allowing your light to burn, without you burning out. There are areas in your life that require more time and attention than others. It is impossible to do everything, be everywhere and not be burned out. Do the things that matter the most for those who matter most.

Delegate
Once you prioritize you can determine which tasks can be done by others. This really comes in handy when you are required to do a lot and only have a small amount of time to get it done. Not only that, delegating built you and the ones you have entrusted to get things done. Delegating gives you more time to focus on the things that matter most.

Chunk
Chunking is the art of taking something big and breaking it down into smaller more manageable pieces. Attacking a smaller more manageable task will do two things. 1. It will take the stress of a big project off of you. 2. It will allow you to have small celebrations throughout the process.

Rest
Rejuvenation begins with rest. Proper rest will allow your body, mind and spirit to be renewed. Rest has some hidden benefits, according to a study done by the University Of Chicago, you can lose weight while you are sleeping and if you don’t sleep at least five and a half hours of sleep you will be hungrier when you wake up. Get plenty of rest to avoid burnout.
