Now, THAT’S Going Cold Turkey!
Speaking from experience, it’s almost impossible to completely disconnect from work the couple of times a year I take a genuine break.
Somehow, the resolve to only check emails once or twice a day erodes, or, some unanticipated issue with a file pops up that requires my (hopefully) brief attention.
Which is why I’m so impressed by the vacation strategy of a Realtor colleague that I recently heard about.
Namely, he leaves his cellphone with his assistant.
You can’t look at your cellphone . . . if you don’t have it with you!
Meanwhile, the colleague relies on his partner’s cellphone when they travel.
Of course, for that to work, you: a) need a full-time assistant (I share mine); b) need a capable Realtor colleague “minding the store” for anything the assistant can’t handle; and c) can’t otherwise need your cellphone on vacation to . . . I dunno . . . communicate with your kids (I have 3), spouse, the rental car company, the airline or ???
Tempting . . . 🙂
