You don't sleep well or hardly at all. You are totally exhausted, discouraged, powerless and it dawns on you that this is not going to last much longer.
First thing in the morning, even before coffee, you check your emails. You set your last appointment at 10 p.m. and just before you go to sleep you have a last look at your mobile phone.
Activity is nowhere in sight, social life neither. You are too tired to go out with your friends, too tired to devote yourself to your spouse.
Your performance takes a dive, you are unfocused and you start making mistakes. Your workload is getting higher and higher and yet you can't get anything off your desk.
The question here is not: "What should you do next", but:
"What the hell are you doing?"
STOP. STOP. STOP. STOP.
Here we need to put in the emergency brake. And then we take care of the big picture.
