Our favorite reason to take a vactaion:

vacation

It's during time away that you see how well your company runs. If you find your company really can't survive without you, you don't have a company, and you need to spend time empowering others, establishing better systems, and creating accountability. Time away makes you a better leader. You need a break to read a book or to just "think." My time away has resulted in the greatest breakthroughs for me personally and for my company. Instead of thinking it is important to be at your company every day, you need to realize it's just as important to take some time away. - Eric Holtzclaw
