Many of us plan our relaxing vacations months in advance, but when the time actually comes we become are riddled with anxiety about the work we are leaving behind.
Did I ever send that last email? Did I upload that file? What if so-and-so has a melt down?
We don’t want to make more work for ourselves while were actually on PTO, but doing a brain dump before you check out (or even while you’re away) of all the things you think you might be missing could help you actually lay back and unwind.
This episode talked about the crazy time we call “Christmas Chaos” but I think it can also apply to “Summer Vacation Madness;” that inevitable time of the summer where at any given day at least one part of your team is missing and you yourself are preparing for your vacay.
Take this as a friendly reminder that you do have to say "no" at some point.
(Note to self: Take my own advice for once in your life.)
