Email versus Your Vacation

May 24, 2011

Vacation time!  You and our family are excited, but then it begins to dawn on you that the emails won’t stop just because you are on vacation and you could be facing a “mountain” of them once you return to work.  but, if you keep checking your laptop, ipad, or PDA, your family may not be so excited either.

So, what do you do?  Michael Hyatt has a great post on this problem.  He deals with the three approaches many of us choose:

1. Remain online.

2. Go offline.

3. A hybrid – staying online with strict guidelines.  As with Michael, this option works best for me.  In fact I am in the South right now visiting family and friends before we head back to Michigan later this week.

Michael says the key is to have a plan and stick to it.  Click here to read some of his great suggestions on how to handle e-mail and vacation and still retain your sanity!
