Don’t stress out about vacations.

I’ve recently read an article about how stressed people are during vacation time. Apparently, lots of people have a hard time spending 24 hours a day with their relatives. They quite rarely have clear opinions about how they want to spend vacations, where to go and in what setting. Those who run their own business are afraid to leave it for a week or two for the fear that something will go wrong with it.

Wow, I thought. Really!?

I can’t help you with your personal motivations and plans. However, business-wise, I can recommend one thing. You need to recharge your batteries sometime. So when you leave your office – stay disconnected for at least a week. You’ll see how many fresh ideas will come to your mind when you detach from daily operations. Your perspective will change, you will change, eventually, your business will also benefit.

If you absolutely have to be informed about what’s going on in your business and you use the XTRF Management System in your organization – set the automatic reports to be delivered to your e-mail. That way, you can quickly monitor KPIs from your smart-phone and return to vacation mode in a snap.

I wish you all a great summer, lots of joyful and refreshing experiences and a happy return to your offices… when you’re ready.

All the very best.

Relax well and enjoy the sunny weather,
