Did you feel any anxiety as you checked your calendar to plan your family vacation?
Did you ask yourself if you should even be going?
What about that big project, client, case or customer?
Did you ask around on your team to see how much vacation other people were taking so you could benchmark?
In today’s podcast episode, I am going to challenge you to rethink vacation and why you should take a vacation.
If you are somebody who takes vacation and doesn't think about work at all and you have no issues saying “I need to take these five days off for vacation”, then feel free to pass on this episode.
But if you have ever had hesitation, a little bit of anxiety (or even stress) around actually taking a vacation and what the implications are of that for your work, then tune in for the episode because I'm going to walk you through a different way to think about vacation and why it's important for you to take it.
My premise here is that taking a vacation reminds you and, more importantly, reminds your boss and colleagues of the value that you bring to the organization.
