Don’t Waste Your Vacation

“A vacation is what you t ake when you can no longer take what you’ve been taking.” – Earl Wilson

So many people in CPA firms do not take the vacation they have been awarded. I hope you are not one of them!

According to an article, I read recently, every year more than half of Americans fail to use all their time off, creating a stockpile of 662 million unused vacation days.

I bet if you counted all the unused vacation days of your entire team (including partners), it would be a significant number.

Studies show that “planners” have an advantage over non-planners. If you plan your vacations in advance you will more than likely use more of your allotted vacation time and take longer vacations.

Winter is a perfect time to think about warm beaches, national parks, mountain retreats and cruises. Rather than going home at night and venting about your day at work, talk about and plan your vacations for 2018.

I took the picture on one of our trips to Hilton Head. Nothing like watching the sun come up out of the ocean.
