I’ve reversed my summer and fall schedules this year. Historically speaking my autumns have been jam packed with conferences, travel, holidaze, etc. My summers have normally been more laid back, quiet, enjoy patio season, etc.
For 2019 I switched my seasons. I have 2 vacations in the fall, and a mini trip back home to see a particular end of a Saga with my brother.
My summer was filled with podcast interviews, meetings, calls, work, etc.
How did I do a role reversal on my schedule?
I scheduled it that way. I planned for my year to be this way.
You control your schedule. Don’t delegate this.
Vacations do help with the prevention of burnout, but they’re not the complete solution to burnout symptoms.
