Burned out/burned in

Burned in is what we look for in an electronic device. It’s working perfectly, in the groove.

Burned out is what happens if we abuse it.

Burn-in comes from a practice, a generous, persistent approach that’s within our control.

Burn out, on the other hand, is often caused by trying to control things that we can’t possibly control. As a result, we waste cycles and create a pattern of stress.

Even though it seems as though the world is trying to steal our focus and our energy, ultimately, in each moment, it’s our choice to make. We can decide to create possibility and contribute. Toward better.
