Going Off the Grid
On top of that, those who do go on vacation don’t disconnect. 72% say they stayed in contact with the office by email or phone while on vacation — and, once again, many do so in order to avoid having a huge pile of work on their return.
This is a big deal to me. I’ve decided to go off the grid for Christmas vacation. We’re going to Arizona for nearly two weeks and I won’t be taking my laptop. I don’t check email on my phone. I’ll have access to computers occasionally, but I don’t plan on using them more than two or three times . This is part of my plan to better compartmentalize: work, other work, and the rest of my life.
