Are you taking time off?
In a CNN article it said workers forfeited $52.4 billion in time off benefits in 2013.
This amounts to providing employers with an average of $500 of free labor.
The result--burnout, stress, and a financial liability for companies that have to pay for the leave when the employee leaves.
In Japan--this is not voluntary--you must take the time. They call it "workaholic intervention."
When I worked in a "real job," I did not take much time off. It broke up my momentum. It cost money.
But maybe there are reasons to do it. Wisdom of age? Nah.
