Staying Motivated When Co-Workers Vacation

August 29th, 2017

If most of your colleagues are out of the office for vacation, it can be hard to stay motivated. Even though it’s easy to dream about your next time off, you actually can use this time to be productive. Here’s how to stay motivated when your coworkers are vacationing.

Use The Time to Get Ahead.

Even though it can be a bummer when your co-workers are out of town, you can use the time to get ahead, so you’re prepared when it’s your turn to vacation.  It’s also a great time to get organized; to catch up on that continual to-do list that waits on the back burner.

Plan Your Vacation.

Planning Your future vacation –  after work hours, of course, is a great motivator. Use the promise of a future break to get down and get busy. Knowing that you have been productive – delivering 100% on the job every day, not only increases your personal satisfaction, but it also enhances your enjoyment when you do take off.

Showcase Your Leadership Abilities.

You could always use your coworkers being on vacation as a way to showcase your leadership abilities. Step up and fill in the gap. Make an effort to be more available and take more initiative during this time – it won’t go unnoticed. Management may consider your leadership skills – even when your colleagues are back from their vacation.
