I'm going on vacation tomorrow and taking a much-needed break from the day-to-day madness that seems to be part of my work life.
Deadlines for no apparent reason.
Projects that were "on hold" suddenly coming to life.
Prospects that didn't return ANY calls or emails popping up and saying "let's do it NOW.
I suspect you know exactly what I mean.
I'm heading out, and while I know that I'll be doing a wee bit of work, this whirling dervish will slow down a bit.
There is no blog emergency for me to handle. Here's why:
I finished all of my client deliverables days before they were due so when I return home I won't be overloaded with deadlines.
I alerted everyone that I was going away and gave them ample time to get in their last-minute requests.
My "brand" is one of extreme timeliness so no one feels stressed about getting their work.
I expect to head out free and clear, do some reading and writing while in the air, and take a break from the grind.
How do you handle your vacation plans? Do you find yourself working while on your trip or do you wrap things up before you head out?
