Unplugged for the holiidays, vacations

December 04, 2005

Tips for relaxing and leaving work behind on vacation or at holiday time:

· Try to finish all work before taking off. Fill out timecards. Tie up loose ends.

· Leave the cell phone at home, but let the office know how you can be located in an emergency. Make clear to bosses, co-workers and assistants that you are to be contacted only if it is urgent.

· Leave the laptop at home unless it's absolutely necessary.

· If you take the laptop, check e-mail only once a day.

· If you must squeeze in some work, limit it to an hour or two and stick to it.

· Set e-mail and voice mail at work to notify people you are on vacation and offer a contact at your office who can handle their request or problem.

· Try leaving all electronic gadgets at home. Go where there are no cell signals or computer jacks and take a real vacation. You deserve it.
