Having a recent vacation myself, I can say that coming back to work after a time off can be at times difficult. Sometimes your trip is so exhausting that you need a vacation from a vacation.
So you’re back at work, but your mind is still on vacation mode. You forget all your passwords to get into your office computer. You forget your officemates’ and employees’ names. And sometimes you even forget how to do your work!
Many times you wish you could extend your vacation, until you get all the bills you racked-up during your leisure trip, then that will kick you back into work, work, work mode once again. You even sing the 7 dwarfs’ song: “I owe, I owe, so off to work I go, I owe, I owe!”
If we only look forward to having a vacation to get out of our work, or we only work to pay for our vacation, then I believe something is wrong. We just live in a vicious cycle and we are not living right.
