It all started with this post from Joe Robinson.
The more we thought about it, the more we realized we should probably talk about vacations/breaks and how they can really fuel productivity.
Here in the United States, we don’t really have a deep work vacation/break culture. We tend to salivate when we hear of our global colleagues taking a month (or longer) to recharge the batteries. The truth is, breaks do inform much more productivity. It’s been proven.
And we’re curious to see and learn how you look at your vacations and breaks.
Some aspects of the topic we’d like to explore this week include:
Our #awscchat on Tuesday will be all about vacations and productivity — as will our weekly Wisdom + Whimsy Wednesday (#awscw3).
If you have something to say about this topic, please let us know. And, as always, if you’d like to get in deeper with us as a contributor, please take a peek at this page, then take a moment to fill out this short form and we’ll be in touch with you as soon as we can.
And if you’re on vacation, just go ahead and ignore this. We don’t want to bug you while you’re getting some well-deserved rest.
