What's the difference between "burnout" and "demoralized" as an employee?
Being burnt out means the job has gotten to you, you've grown tired of doing it day in and day out, it may be time for a change either on the job front or possibly the career front. Demoralized means that someone or something is crushing your spirit and drive, making you feel empty and lost.
A burnout is ...When a person starts taking the "Routines" as "Specialized jobs"... out of sheer frustration !
An example ...
That instead of taking the routine Lift ride to the ground floor ... one starts taking the Emergency Exit stairwell !
Because, Boredom of Routines ... reaches a saturation point in almost every one of us ... because, by nature, we need Change ... but if, or when we cannot change the boring routines into something productive or interesting ... the will, to "Do" leaves us.
Morale, on the other hand, has more to do with ones "ambience" ... "surroundings" ...than with the "Normal" job related Routines ...
An emotionally weak employee will be easily demoralized by the comments of Competitors, or, by the pickings of an inconsiderate ... slave driver type of boss.
Therefore, it can be said ... that the difference between Burnout and Demoralization is; that while Burnout, is essentially Internal ... Demoralization, is usually an Externally induced Feeling in a person.
Demoralized is on the way to burnout. when things get tough, you feel dejected, your self worth is in doubt and you are without control of the situation. Burnout is when you have had enough, you are totally dejected you feel that you are not valued. All you want to do is go home and not return. Indeed you may do this.
