You get the memo – 2 days off for the holidays; and the planning starts. Maybe I’ll jet off somewhere exciting or maybe I’ll make it a marathon of lounging for the most relaxing break ever.
Whatever you end up doing, work slowly slips into the back corners of your mind, and doesn’t creep back into consciousness until the yawn-dominated drive back to work on the first day back.
But when you’ve checked out, who’s been checking in on your business?
It’s important to keep the connection even when you’re not there. Not that we’re saying you have to work through your entire break, you just have to make sure everything looks like you’re still there even when you’re not.
So whether you hand it over to someone else, or find ways to do the small stuff while you’re lounging by the pool; make sure it gets done.
It may not be your company, but if you don’t care, why should they?
