Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: We forget that when we remember the human side of the business that it's also the things that often we don't talk about which is burnout or as Michael calls it “prolonged stress.” That's for ourselves as leaders but also for our teams. I think one of the biggest things that Michael talked about is that 99.9% of people won't have to do a “deep dive” and make huge changes to stop the road that's leading toward burnout. These things for example color coding your calendar can help you to be aware of what could be leading to burnout.

Probably the biggest one that I tell people time and time again, especially as an executive, is to quit emailing your staff after hours and on weekends. Just stop doing that, please.
