“We all know about, and many of us have experienced, burnout,” begins a piece on Above the Law by Jill Switzer, a lawyer and longtime bar member in California. “It’s on the rise this year, and not unexpectedly, due to what’s happened over the past 16 months.” But what about boreout? “No, that’s not a typo,” she continues. “It’s a term to describe being bored out of your mind along with crises of both meaning and growth.” That’s nothing new to any lawyer dealing with motivation sucks such as reviewing yet another canned document or writing yet another motion to compel. Whether you work in-house our outside, boreout (or burnout) obviously is not great for your career. Read more from Jill here and freak out about boreout.
