Got the groove back to work today, finally! After a good 10 days! Part of it was due to what I call the ghost week@work - most people are on vacation during thanksgiving and Christmas to new year week. I always
work go to work during these weeks.
Most of it was the vacation hangover which brings me to the question of this post,, the whole idea that vacation makes you work better. The boss told me that exact sentence before I left. I know I was all raring to go rather come back and work when I left, having just successfully completed what I had to before heading for vacation. Couldn't stop myself from checking emails the first few days. When I came back I felt like Bin laden in a feminist rally or George Bush jr in a IEEE conference!
It took 10 days to feel like the sheep in a herd - which is how it should be:)
Point is, I am one of those single gear people - you put me on work mode - work work I go - you put me on vacation mode - it is all vacation after that, just don't ask me to switch gears.
