Burnout Expert Steven Berglas on Surviving the 2020 Hellscape
From the Bookable Podcast with Author Amanda Stern
Bookable features established authors and emerging talent in conversation with host and author Amanda Stern, perhaps best known for creating the Happy Ending Music & Reading Series at New York’s famous Joe’s Pub and Symphony Space. With an immersive sound experience designed around each episode, Bookable takes you on an audio exploration of a book—usually new, sometimes classic and occasionally obscure but always worth knowing about.
Are you exhausted? Does this pandemic and political hellscape feel like a job you’re not allowed to quit? In Stay Hungry and Kick Burnout in the Butt, Dr. Steven Berglas has the perfect prescription to help you channel all that energy into something positive and worthwhile. Listen as he and Amanda explore what makes us feel fulfilled and self-actualized while exploring some stories about people who channeled those negative feelings for good.
From the episode:
Dr. Steven Berglas: Anger is the scapegoat of emotions. It’s universally misunderstood, but it can be a great source of fuel for doing good.
