As you may surmise from my previous post I’m back from vacation. I was as unplugged as I’ve been in a couple years, I think I answered one email and looked at my inbox maybe twice. My home inbox is still backlogged, at work I returned to 200 or so new messages, about half of which I went through in a couple hours, and still working through the rest.
Email is expected, not a big deal. Harder is gearing up again for the pace and the focus required to make things go that involve people. It’s going from no-stress to some level of stress and then trying to adapt to it again. For me that’s the hard part of returning and so far no magic formula for making it easier or faster. Doesn’t mean the vacation wasn’t worth it!
