Just listening to the Oct 20th episode on burnout.
Really enjoying the perspectives here. It has been and continues to be a struggle to define the difference between stress and burnout for myself.
Been trying to train myself to get up early and go to bed early. So far the late nights are still prevailing. getting better about not having TV on in the "background"
Part of the burnout i struggle with is from a natural desire to learning new things but also a bit of the perceived need from the industry. As a designer, i feel compelled (unhireable) if my skills don't continue to grow to include print, web, UX, UI, animation, video, production designer, branding, strategy, and illustration. My goal is to go freelance and have the understanding to clearly communicate with talent i'd hire/contract for jobs when those skillsets are needed.
But to the real pressing info from this episode and question possed by @Lee-White. The Roadrunners "Beep Beep" was pulled from real life. Art imitates life right. The animation team at Warner Brothers pulled it from a co-worker walkin through the office he'd say ""hmeep hmeep" when he coudlnt see where he was going.
