From Burnout To Happy. You Really Can Make The Leap

0 2 years ago

Today, burnout is one of the top discussion items in every kind of workplace. Unfortunately, most of the conversation seems to focus on the problem rather than the solution. Or, better yet, on preventative measures.

Nataly Kogan offers a wealth of make-sense ideas that just might save you from chronic exhaustion. Or maybe even a heart attack. She’s author of The Awesome Human Project. Her book’s subtitle should have a particularly wide appeal: Break Free from Daily Burnout, Struggle Less, and Thrive More in Work and Life.

Okay, that’s pretty ambitious. But she delivers.

Nataly’s story is intriguing. At the age of 13, she immigrated to the U.S. as a refugee from the former Soviet Union. After beginning her American life in the projects and on welfare, she worked her way up to key positions at McKinsey & Company and Microsoft. She then devoted her energy to five startups and tech companies.

But the frenetic pace left her unfulfilled and burned out. As she now tells anyone who will listen, “Happiness and well-being can never be achieved by anything we do on the outside.”

Today she devotes her energy and ingenuity to an organization called, aptly enough, Happier. Yes, Happier. It’s a wellness company that helps people “find, create, and celebrate more small awesome moments in their daily lives.” Nataly herself is definitely happier as she shares her science-backed skills and practices with top companies through her leadership programs. She’s been featured in scores of media outlets including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and The Dr. Oz Show.
