Burnout happens to everyone, but don't wait for it to happen to you. Stay on top of your game without losing your drive to work with these helpful tips:

1. Make a to-do list.
Admit it. That sense of accomplishment you get from having ticked off another task on your to-do list is invigorating.

2. Get a motivation buddy.
She’s the one person whom you can go to whenever you need someone to inspire you or shame you into going back to your annual report (and vice-versa).

3. Listen to TED Talks.
Instead of listening to music, go to TED Talks and find someone who can help revive your work mojo. From fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi to historical novelist Tracy Chevalier, there is a motivational speaker there for everyone.

4. Remember your goal.
What would finishing all your tasks accomplish? Would it allow you to go home early or give a shot at being promoted? Ask yourself why it is so important that you do good, and the answer would help you move forward.

5. Pace yourself.
Don’t try to do everything at once. Know your strengths and weaknesses, so you can better plan the rest of your day. Productivity isn’t always about getting multitasking—it’s about making good use of the time you have. Know when to take a break with your friends, and know when to dive back in.
