Summary

This is a rhymed story about the subtle art of cooling down after burning out. 
What's the story with Matches?  
Just like all of the characters in our metaphor universe, this is another gender-ethnic-religious neutral metaphor. It's a satire journal about a "perfect-match hero" excelling at work. Colleagues are always full of praise when it comes to Matches, and everyone enjoys having Matches as a core team member. Why? Well, because Matches doesn’t care for workplace politics and gets the job done EVERY TIME, again and again! Emotional burnout? Not a phrase you would match with our Matches. Until one random and unfortunate day... A day like any other days, the same exchange of hours we all experience across the world... While completing yet another random set of tasks, Matches got punched in the face by the friction of Workload and this spark ignited the process of burnout... 
Where's the lesson?  
Yeah, we've all been here. But this time, we go into a bit more details on how burnout affects an individual's behavior and what's the real damage behind burnout in the workplace. Plus, we give you a glimpse of how you can detect this stage earlier and take care of yourself before it gets out of hand and turns into a wildfire. Want to see how managers try to put out a forest fire with water guns? Find out more by selecting this short story as your afternoon delight!
