Is that you can shut the world off whenever you want to.
The worse thing is that you have people that rely on you – often even more than if you worked for a big company. So you can’t really shut down for long.
How do you deal with burn out? I’m not talking about annual vacation time – I’m talking about the every few months or weeks – whatever – when you just need a couple days to get your head wrapped on correctly.
Does your boss understand that every now and then you need a brain-drain day, or is it completely unacceptable to lose a day of work no matter what?
