There’s nothing quite so fulfilling as opening up Outlook at 4:32 on the Friday before your vacation just to turn on the Out of Office assistant:
I am out of the office beginning Monday, July 30th. I will be returning on Monday, August 5th. If this is an urgent issue, please contact…
Vegas, here I come.
I’m actually not flying out till Tuesday, but I haven’t taken a real vacation since becoming a consultant, so I decided to take the entire week off. My project’s not at a critical phase right now. We’re not behind on our milestones. Everything’s currently in order, and besides, if there ARE problems, the team has my number.
So, a full week off. I have no idea exactly how to spend it. And for a guy who makes his living helping companies plan their time…it’s a great feeling.
See you at FanFaire!
