You can have the best product in the world.
The best plan in the world.
And the best team in the world.
But if *this* entrepreneurial beast rears its head in your life and business — you’ll still risk having the entire thing burn to the ground with little to no warning.
We’re talking about entrepreneurial burnout and overwhelm.
Two things that NEVER get spoken about or factored into that epic Zoom call with your team where you list out all your massive Q4 goals. Yet nothing stalls progress more than a founder (or entire team) who’s constantly running on fumes and flirting with elevated cortisol levels.
And since sidestepping burnout is SO fundamental to hitting your goals and growing your software company…
… I shot a new episode outlining the 4-Step process I personally use to get my team quickly back on track when things start to flatline.

At a high level, here’s what you’ll want to do at the FIRST sign of burnout (pro tip: don’t wait for your team members to admit they’re having trouble. Do this proactively):
- Dump it
- The Four D’s
- Chunk it
By dumping EVERYTHING on your list, you’ll immediately gain much needed perspective and mental/emotional distance from the stack of items. In short — you’ll empower yourself to get proactive instead of reactive.
From there, the Four D’s (which I go over in full detail in the episode)… will give you a clear action plan on how to handle each task.
You’ll watch your “to do” list shrink, get additional support/resources where needed, and feel an immediate sense of renewed excitement and energy around your MOST critical projects.
It’s not always sexy — but this is one of those ‘difference” makers that truly separate the Fortune 500’s from the footnotes 😉
