The Vacation Test

A break is worthwhile for anyone – time to reconnect, disconnect, eat well, sleep an extra hour.

If, at a week in a break, you aren’t ready to get back to the work, then you just failed the Vacation Test.

Why did you fail?

  1. You are too burned out from long-term overexertion. Vacation longer.
  2. You need to adjust the work you do. Start figuring out how.
  3. You lack autonomy in your life direction. (This is particularly true for students.) Look ahead to when that changes.

I’m ready to get back to work. How about you?
