I am taking today off as I did on Friday. This is the first time in three years I am not feeling sick or tired at the end of the year; and in 2010, particularly the last five months of the year, was busier than 2009 and 2008.
I attribute this to being in better health and using my strengths as a structured person (there’s goes Emergenetics again) to relieve any stress that might have, in the past, crept up on me.
Of course, even though I am out of the office, I am still working. My schedule on vacation days like these are such that I try to put in an hour of work in the morning, the afternoon, and the evening, while the rest of the day is mine.
It might sound a little strange to some but it works for me.
