Connectivity is a blessing and a curse. Because it’s easy to quickly check email, call a client or edit a proposal, you may find yourself doing these things on days you’ve designated as time-off or, even worse, on sick days. During your “time off” put the work away. Don’t take it home. If necessary, use Friday as a day to organize the work you will need to address on Monday and leave it at work. If you’ve told people you’re taking time off, honor that commitment to yourself. It will make it easier for others to honor it as well.
