Fast forward to today, when the CEO is 66 years old, he still isn’t tired of the baby he created at 20. Nor he gets burn out. When questioned about what was the secret behind this, Bill stated that he never has a fix routine, so every day is a new day for him at Microsoft.
According to him, there are new meetings, new clients, new projects and new customers to tackle every day and hence it gives him and his employees a broader creative horizon.

Burn out is quite easily identifiable and hence when you encounter it, it is important that you stop and think once and change your routine. If you can’t change your routine, there are other ways to tackle burn out too.
