Dear managers,

Please set a good example by taking your vacations. Leave the laptop at home and really unwind. Encourage your employees to take theirs. The short term cost of the week or two lost in a couple of project schedules is going to be made up in improved worker productivity, quality, and engagement on return. If you can't accomodate that amount of slowdown, you probably have other problems too.

I'll let you know next week when I'm back from Hawaii. This is my third visit to the Kaimana Klassik ultimate tourney. I've had a total blast, though I have yet to find time to sneak in a day or two of work like I'd hoped. 10 days is a long,luxurious, wonderful trip -- and drains my vacation account down to roughly 0 hours.

No perl posts for you this week! I did do some fun re-factoring while flying over.
