I first picked up this concept from a talk done by Ricardo Semler on TED and added my views to it.
You have worked hard and finally managed to squeeze in a vacation, you then get down to find the right location and the best deal. The internet entices you with all the spots you have to visit and add to your bucket list. Most often people look for the best deal on tickets and place and not sure thats what they had in mind but anyways go ahead because its the best deal on the stay or flight tickets.
Now you start to plan your vacation and want to maximize your time and money. There are multiple lists on the internet for top 10 things to do and places to visit. You plan meticulously so that you don’t miss the sunrise at the best spot or the most authentic restaurant or little known place of pilgrimage. You pack the days with events and places to visit from dawn to dusk. At the end of your vacation you are more exhausted than when you started.
Vacations are supposed to be relaxing and numbing however, the choice of place and activities make it taxing. I would suggest that you go to a scenic vacation place, wake up late, sit and talk with the family, plan only 1 or 2 events for the entire time you are there and Do Not watch TV!!. Spend time with the family and do some activity or just sit and chat up.
You will come back more revitalized and can be more productive!
