Title: Getting Away from it All - Living an Unplugged Life as an IT
Most IT professionals spend some of their weekend on work stuff. Check email, work on a design, do some research, or on a "fun" project.
After 25 yrs in IT I finally realized that rarely does this help me get ahead. Mostly it makes me feel crushed, rushed, and stretched to the limit.
Not too long ago I started disconnecting for one day every week - totally unplugging. Not just me, but my whole family. Unsurprisingly, doing this did not drive us to the brink of madness.
This is my story, and the lessons I've learned.
