Vacation = No work
“Business owners and managers are the most overworked people in America,” says Joe Robinson, author of Work to Live . “They need to see that it’s not a badge of courage, but a problem. And they should realize that free time is an engine for innovation and creativity.”
Go on vacation and trust your co-workers. Especially if you have your own company. “Staff will love it. They will be more productive with you out of their hair,” Robinson says. If you must, he suggests checking in at the end of the day, but “If you are too chicken to go whole hog, go somewhere where there is no cellular service”
Where to lose that precious connection
Road warriors call them dead zones. But for vacationers, locales with spotty or no cellular phone reception can be oases. “Locals don’t want an ugly cell tower ruining the scenic beauty of the area,” says wireless analyst Scott Ellison, of IDC. At the following destinations, where coverage is notoriously weak across carriers, the only roaming you’ll be doing will be with your own two feet:
Silver City, N. Mex.
Upper Saranac Lake, N.Y.
Jackson Hole, Wyo.
