That was on my mind as I swung my legs out of bed on this Monday morning. Here it is, mid-June, and I still haven’t planned to take a vacation.
Are you in the same boat?
Lawyers and vacations share an uneasy relationship. They clearly need a break away from work stressors. But many attorneys find that they cannot—or will not—get away.
So I was wondering: How many of you are planning a vacation this summer, or have taken one already.
Before you get to the simple survey questions below, here are two guidelines to keep in mind:
- When I say “vacation,” I do not mean that you never ever ever check email. You know what’s too much. Answer accordingly.
- When I say “vacation,” I tend not to think of lawyer-education conferences. But I guess we can disagree, so if “CLE on Pelican Bay” is your idea of relaxation, feel free to answer accordingly.
- When I say “vacation,” that could mean visiting family across the country, or it could not. I am not getting in the middle of the debate over whether an obligatory journey to see family is a vacation. We all have our opinions. Answer according to your conscience and level of guilt.
So here’s the survey. Click away! (and thanks for participating!)
