The present-day pandemic has closed many professionals off from one another during times of quarantine, while offering a platform to work from home. This has had benefits and negatives, with professional burnout occurring more than ever before. A Gallop Poll in the United States of America reports that 30% of workers are stressed to the point that their work is directly affected, while another 40% are actively dealing with burnout, with 62% worried about their professional futures. Burnout occurs, it begins typically with feelings of waning passion, then work begins to suffer, followed by making poor choices of coping with the issues at hand, and then ending with the worker being completely disengaged. Identification is key. This paper offers how to identify professional burnout, and how to quell it and reverse its effects. The concept of professional burnout is likened to the simile of a fire burning as an example of the experience process.
