as I am new, learning and researching in this field made me find many posts where people said that they are exhausted or even burnt out by this job/field.

What are the main drivers for this in your opinion? Deadlines, pressure to perform, need of high skillet?

What would you recommend someone new in this field who tries avoid burnout?
