Most avid recorders have experienced burnout (or come close) at some point. This thoughtful post from Graeme Lyons is worth reading (not just for entomologists):

Thanks for this thoughtful contribution Alan. I do understand that recording can be exhausting at times. My only constructive criticism regarding the shared article is that it is problematic to advocate terms like 'yin and yang' without providing the reader with the cultural context of such terminology. Transparency is essential when an attempt is being made to initiate the reader into adopting a philosophy or religion. If the reader chooses to believe in 'yin and yang' they are actually signing up to a larger belief system rooted in a number of cosmologies originating in the East such as Taoism, Buddhism and Hinduism.
