Have you ever been sitting in your office looking at the laptop but you can’t work? That was how I was last year, then because of the pandemic, most of the staff left so I had so many things to handle, however some came back but the workload was getting to me, it seemed I reached a point where my brain could no longer think, however for an entire month I just sat there each day not able to do much until my boss noticed.
She called me into her office and said it was time to take a break.
I tried to explain there was still lots to do but she told me something I’ll never forget. If I took 2 weeks or longer to relax, the company would still be there when I got back, then the next day, I booked a hotel in a beautiful area and went away to relax. The first evening at the hotel all I did was sleep, but then, things went sideways the next day when the AC component stopped finally working. I tried to call the front desk to explain the AC component was out. But it seemed there was no one responding to this matter. I had to get up and head down to complain once more, this time loudly for management to take action, however within 15 minutes an AC worker was in our room checking to see why the AC system wasn’t working. It seemed no one had cleaned the air filter in some time. Now it was blocking air flow into the room, so needless to say, I checked out of this hotel and went someplace else for better relaxation.
