vacation timeWhether you prefer warm weather vacations or cold weather getaways, taking real vacation time away from work is important to keep you functioning at your peak. In this age of constant connectivity, though, taking time off from you admin job can be difficult when you have so many people depending on you.

I just spent two weeks traveling in Australia and New Zealand in conjunction with speaking at Executive Secretary LIVE in Auckland last Friday. While this trip was part work, it was also part vacation. So I did everything I possibly could in advance of the trip to make sure I had things documented for my team so they could handle whatever needed to be done in my absence. It was delightful to not have to worry about work or email for the better part of two weeks.

This week, we’re explaining why it’s crucial to take time off from your admin job, and the benefits of doing so. I share some of my best practices for preparing to successfully unplug in the feature article. And we’re sharing some tips and resources on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages to support you in this effort also.

Supporting your administrative success,
