Back on the Grid

Transitioning back from two weeks away has proven to be easier than I expected. It could be because I kept current by checking my Treo every so often, deleting many emails yet also attending to small things that needed attention, but could be dispensed with quickly and not drag over until I returned home. It seemed the best thing to do so when I got back to the office the emails were not overwhelming. When I “admitted” to doing some work while away I got mixed responses. Some folks understood that in my situation as a solopreneur I have only myself to lean on (a scary thought, yes?); others went so far as to tell me that I was “stupid” for not vacating both my physical as well as mental premises.

Personally, I think that you do what works for you. Total work blackout for 2 weeks would be impossible for me to do and the stress when I returned would more than eliminate most (all?) of the pleasures experienced while away.

On another note, if you go to Barcelona, stay at the Casa Camper. Awesome place, fabulous brand. Check out their web site too.

  1. Adrian,

    You did the right thing. If checking your email occasionally gives you peace of mind and allows you to enjoy your vacation then that’s what you need to do. Good for you, and yes, Barcelona is wonderful.
