40% of the workforce took a vacation last year. This year 33% of workers plan to take a vacation. Don’t underestimate the value of having a week away from your job. It can make a marked increase in your productivity. Make sure you are in the 1/3 of your coworkers to go on vacation this year.
Mike Thomas says
It’s important to take your vacation. It’s extremely important to take a break in order to center yourself. But to have a truly relaxing vacation, it’s crucial to spend the weeks before in preparation. On The Daily Machete, for instance, I lined up guest bloggers to write posts during my vacation. By delegating and reassigning duties and tasks, work can be done while you’re on vacation – which means you won’t have to come back to a heap of work.
It also means you can relax and enjoy your vacation.
