Historically I have watched my clients (and myself) work like crazy right up until I leave for my holiday/vacation and I arrive at my location exhausted! So this year I decided to do something different, I have decided to be most productive this time and have built in time to get everything done the week before I go away! I have made a list of projects to complete and follow up actions to do before the weekend, that means I can really relax on the weekend and then enjoy my vacation.
Quick Productivity Tip: Book time to get your office up to date and your actions completed one week before your vacation, this takes away the anxiety and pressure the week leading up to the vacation then you won't waste your time (and your money) spending the first few days recovering from working too hard! Get productive... even before you go on vacation.
