I am on vacation this week and read an interesting stat from Fortune about staying healthy. A survey by a staffing firm Hudson says that 34%of employees check in with the office so frequently while on vacation, they come back ‘either more stressed than, or just as stressed as, when they left”
When I was younger, I used to call in on deals. During all these years, I never lost a deal while away on vacation (Christmas time was different – that was end of year).
I am taking this week off, and I was asked to come on 2 conference calls – I said no. Why? Because to truly recharge, you must unplug from work – I firmly believe that. I know a number of people who do not believe that … and I also know that when I come back, nothing will be unrepairable (Or changed).
