His example has inspired me. I've got a family vacation coming up soon, and I'm going to make a real effort to disconnect. I've got a great team at the office, and I know they can handle anything that may arise while I'm gone. And, as McDonald said, they know they can reach me if something truly urgent develops.
My hope is that, if I'm able to improve my disconnection from work while on vacation, I'll improve my connection to my family. I'd love to hear my own children talk someday about the great trips we took when they were children and how for them, as with me, those times were pure family time.
How about you? Have you cut back on how often you check in with the office while on vacation? If so, what spurred you to make the change? What tips would you offer to others who are trying to do the same?
Please send me your ideas, and I'll share them in a future column. Here's hoping we can help each other make a summer of awesome memories.
