I’m doing my best to be on vacation—or, to be honest, home-cation—but, as Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) said in Godfather III, “I’m tryin’ to get out but they keep pullin’ me back in!”
If I could simply do an out-of-office message for email, leave an I’m-on-vacation message on my phone and click my mind off (and yes, there are those who would contend that my mind has never been clicked ON) maybe I could experience all the relaxing benefits of being on vacation….but, I can’t.
Like you, I keep getting emails and phone calls and texts from folks who want to talk or send me information about work; which means I then think about it.
If you have some tips about how to click your mind off and actually be on vacation please leave a comment. I’ll make sure to pass on the best ones.
