Stand out doing the work you love without burning out.

Do you love your job but feel stressed to the max? Are you exhilarated by your achievements but lately have you been feeling like you cannot keep going at your current pace? Does some part of you know your relationship with work has to change? Then Dear Work is for you.
Chief vitality officer of leadership research and coaching firm BrainAMPED, Sara Ross explains exactly how you can keep accelerating in your career and achieving great things. The first step is to stop convincing yourself that the rules of overwork don’t apply to you. But by putting the power of brain science into action, you can get out of a survive-the-day mentality and reignite your take-on-the-day vitality at work.
In Dear Work, you will learn:
- How to identify four tricky “success traps”—mistaken beliefs that snare you into thinking you’re doing what it takes when really what you’re doing is taking from you.
- How to adopt a “yes, and” stress mindset and develop a better approach to stress management.
- Proven, actionable techniques for boosting your vitality at work so that you stand out without burning out.
- And much, much more.
You don’t need another book telling you to slow down, temper your passion, or ease up on your ambition. But you may need a new way to fuel both your desire to shine and your refusal to let up. A practical love letter to you and your professional life, Dear Work will show you how.
