How Long Until Your Next Vacation?

Office with red chair and a sign on it that says Out Of Office Gone On Holiday.

“My boss always wants to know why all I do is talk about my vacation. It’s because I live for it – 49 weeks for those three.”

These are words we heard while meeting someone at an event.

I get it, this is a busy time of year for spring break adventures. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for vacation and the ability to relax and unwind. But too many of us end up wishing away a lot of time for just a little bit.

What would happen if we lived in a society where there was no separation between work and life? What would it be like if you didn't have to choose between “living to work” or “working to live”? What if you could just live your life no matter if you were at work or at home?

Now’s the time for people to be just as pumped about going to work as going on vacation (okay, maybe not just as pumped, but still able to look forward to it).

How would businesses improve if we all brought our whole selves to work every day and work was fulfilling enough that we needn't spend our time dreaming about when we don’t have to be there?

Vacation shouldn’t be a respite from the routine and demands of work life. When this mindset exists, it starts to sound like a huge divide between work and personal life. Using spring breaks as an escape, versus a time to just enjoy.

Our team is on a mission to have people equally excited for work (yes, Monday’s included) and vacations. So we don’t wish away precious time in our lives, but feel fulfilled with our lives and have all aspects become a source of joy and purpose.


A Team Human Conversation

Fight workplace zombies in your organization and join Team Human! Gather a group of fellow workplace zombie hunters to discuss our most recent blog post. Use the questions below to kick-start your conversation.

  1. Can you relate to the feeling of eagerly anticipating vacations and counting down the weeks until you can escape from work? Why or why not?

  2. Imagine a world where there is no clear boundary between work and personal life. People are just living good lives. How do you think this would impact your overall well-being and satisfaction with both work and time off?

  3. How do you think the organization could benefit if team members brought their whole selves to work every day and found fulfilment in their roles, eliminating the constant desire for escape from routine?
