  • The most emotionally demanding aspect of a work situation is its lack of existential significance.  People need meaning in their lives, and the failure to find such meaning will cause burnout.  It is not objective failure per se that causes burnoutbut rather the feeling that one’s efforts are insignificant and meaningless.  Similarly, it is not objective success per se that prevents burnoutbut rather subjective experience of doing something meaningful. - Wilmar B Schaufeli, Christina Maslach and Tadeusz Marek
