Burned out? From this week’s A List Apart article by Scott Boms:

You may be flirting with burnout if:

  • Every day is a bad day
  • You are no longer emotionally invested in your job or the work you’re doing
  • You feel unappreciated or do not feel like you’re making a difference in your job
  • There is a clear disconnect between your personal values and what is expected of you
  • Self-defined goals or those imposed on you are unrealistic or unreasonable
  • A significant amount of your day is focused on tasks that are not fulfilling on a personal or emotional level

See the full article for a well-written look at how burnout happens and what to do about it.

Excellent piece by Andy Rutledge in today’s ALA on Contrast and Meaning, which includes the above illustration of the primary forms of contrast. I love this subject, which Rutledge says “can pay healthy dividends in your design work.”
