"Why is everybody always so sure that it is the workers who are at fault, they need only quit complaining and get lists of tipps to getting things done.We should (also) consider some other real causes of burnout, not only devise therapeutic regimes to help us cope just a little longer. Why don’t we ever focus on poor management (for instance a prevalence of sociopathic individuals in positions of authority)? This ideoloy of self-optimization tries to squeeze out even the last drip. And there are fairly few attempts to illuminate methods to improve the quality of management, plan projects with with real-world goals, reduce exploitive and manipulative practices. It is not always our fault if we do not burn but burn out."
