That doesn't mean I can't get work done.
Working on vacation is totally an American concept.
Visiting the in-laws is not exactly a vacation either.
Heh, yeah I was going to add unless you are in Japan but not on vacation when you are working. Similar to how I did before, had a couple of weeks of true vacation, and worked remotely otherwise,while overseas.
That's the benefit to this type of workstyle. The "need" for a true vacation is so much less. Because I already do pretty much what I want.
Yeah, we talk about that at NTG a lot.... the "work as a lifestyle" type work. A career and job and company that let's your work and your life integrate. The idea of a vacation starts to not mean much. Vacations are conceptually for people who want to escape work and life. But we approach it as... you shouldn't want to escape your job. We try to make working here something people enjoy, not just "good enough for the paycheck."
Are you prepared to test that by offering unlimited paid vacation?
