I think this is a (mental) problem. 😞

There is always work to be done. Relax, the sun is going to come up and life will go on no matter what you do or don’t do.

As I have moved up in levels I’ve given less and less fucks about open work when going on. Vacation. You will never finish all of it. Something will always be waiting. Get the urgent and important done. Push the rest to your team and be ready for a short storm when you get back. Don’t check mails. I’ll answer urgent calls but that’s about it. Also my vacation is maxed and heading out soon for a few days as well !

A vacation without work waiting ahead is called unemployment, is that what you are referring to as the relief of your mental issues?

I’m about to head off to vacation too. Tons of stuff still ongoing....but..... IT’S VACATION! Do what you’re supposed to do and turn off work!!!!!!
