How to Avoid Overachiever Burnout

One of the things I’m most proud of as an entrepreneur is my ability to really go hard after, and achieve, my goals.

But (surprise surprise) that’s a mixed blessing. It turns out my ability to push myself at high levels can result in some serious repercussions for my health!

Can you relate?

For example, about a year ago I was on a grueling book tour, launching multiple brands, and moving to the United States from Canada… and while I was somehow managing to fit it all in… my body was crumbling.

Eventually, adrenal fatigue, burnout, and exhaustion found me. And I knew it was finally time to take my health seriously.

Since then I’ve worked with a team of doctors (a few of whom you’ve met in my Superhuman Entrepreneur series!), scaled back my projects, and started to set up morning and evening routines to nourish my body and mind.

And when I did that… everything changed. I was the most productive I’d ever been, while feeling energized, healthy, and raring to go!  

Curious about what I learned?

I’m sharing my best health hacks and tips with you inside week 5 of the Goal Standard Challenge!

(Yep – it’s already the final week of my collaboration with Entrepreneur Magazine, but you can still sign up to access all the materials and recordings right here if you want to set and hit a goal in 2017.)

In this video I reveal exactly how I stay healthy while pursuing my biggest, most challenging goals, including:
