I don’t know about you but 20 years ago when I finished my work during the week, I had the weekend off.
I never opened my laptop – in fact, rarely took it out of my bag.
Today life is more complicated – if you turn off digital communication, you will certainly have to deal with it later. If you leave it on, you’re always on.
The reason we like vacations is because they force us to change our routines, to simplify them and give us a break from all the things that accumulate in our lives that weigh us down.
While we can’t have a vacation every day, we can adopt the vacation attitude – change the routine if only in a minor way, find a different way to work. The great WLS Program Director John Gehron takes pictures on his different walks to work in Chicago.
