I went on vacation and a funny thing happened — I didn’t do any work

Everything here is entirely accurate, and should be entirely common sense. This is particularly prevalent in the tech industry (where I work) where the “startup culture” and “Live to work” mentality is expected.

As a small business owner and a member of the tech community I say, “Fuck the work-cation, and fuck any boss that expects or encourages it.” Work should be a means to an end. Yes it absolutely helps to enjoy it, and yes while you are working you should be taking it seriously and doing your best; however your work should never be more important to you than your family, friends, and the time that you don’t spend at work.

Like what you read? Give Nathan Cox a round of applause.
