Allowing yourself to recharge
I just returned from a week's vacation so this post hits home. i experienced every thought and feeling Andrew lays out here. He's right, these days it's difficult to just let go. Work can be all-consuming and it's so accessible, so it's no easy task to shut the door for awhile. But if you have a good and trustworthy team, you can do it. Should do it. And try not to look at email. (Ok, maybe a mid-week check and another check the day before returning). I try to think of a week off as a time of rest but also a recharging. I'll do better work later because of it.
