Working hard is no fun. Working until you are burned out can turn into a real disaster. Do not hope that it will affect only your working time, the burnout can ruin your whole life: your relationship with the significant other, relationships with your friends. You can lose your motivation to do anything, and in the most severe stage of the syndrome you can lose your desire to live further. These changes do not happen out of the blue. The symptoms are usually obvious to everybody but the one who suffers from the burnout. Whether you do not want to notice them, or you cannot see them because you are buried in work, the result will, unfortunately, be the same.
