For some reason, I seem to get an odd array of blog posts sent to me. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. You get some interesting ideas that way. Like this one.
Has anyone taken a vacation lately? I did, I took two days last week after the 4th. It was great, and fortunately, I was at a hotel that had Wi-Fi so I was able to dial in and work the first two hours (and the last two hours) of each day I was on vacation. That’s what vacation is, right? You are out of the office but you are still working part of the day and your mind is on the job the entire day. And that’s the way it’s supposed to be, right. I mean I am the job. You’re the job. We’re all the job. 24 X 7.
But you and I know better. I remember, one of my first jobs with a large company, one of the teams was on a big project and they worked night and day. The only thing was, I noticed that during the day, the only thing those guys really did was walk around and talk to people about how horribly busy they were. And I thought – dude, wouldn’t it be better to have these guys chill a bit and just work from 8 – 5 like the rest of us. The truth is, rest is good. It refreshes you and helps you work more efficiently.
But that’s not the way it’s done today as we persist in pursuing the wrong path to the wrong goals. And so I found this blog post refreshing. I am trying to contact them now to see if they have any openings.
