Over the last nine months or so, I have been slowly burning out at my job, but that’s not the problem. I am taking steps to combat my own burn-out. The problem is that over this time, I’ve been watching my company add more and more work to my boss. It’s like the higher-ups have asked themselves “What else can we do to burn Boss out?” and then they do what they think of. They have assigned her to time-consuming projects only to pull her off of them mid-way through, essentially wasting her time.
