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?
- You are too burned out from long-term overexertion. Vacation longer.
- You need to adjust the work you do. Start figuring out how.
- 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?
