Most people can’t work all the time, you need some downtime to “recharge” – so take a vacation and enjoy yourself.
A vacation can actually boost your productivity in two ways, the first is the obvious, a nice change of pace and some rest will help you come back mentally recharged and ready to take on new challenges.
The second and even more important impact of a vacation is less obvious.
When you work on something every day you are too close, you are focused on the details and you can’t see the big picture – by leaving for a while you can take a step back and when you return you may see a more efficient way to do your work you just didn’t notice before.
Just whatever you do don’t work when you’re on vacation, this will not only ruin your vacation it will also eliminate any work related advantages of time off.
