Dear Ted "I'm so busy at work, I'm going to have to cancel my holiday, help!"

Posted on 4th July, 2019

Some perspective is needed. 


On very rare occasions, like a merger or major restructuring, it may well be sensible to re-set your dates and your employer should willingly cover your postponement costs BUT I said RARE!


Being blunt: sadly I know of too many people who are (literally) no longer alive today because they didn't take the need to have a holiday seriously, or allowed their work to build up to such a level that they could never take their eye off their phone.


You have to remember that there are bigger things in life than work.  And you will find this out the day they no longer need you, or the day you are hospitalised!!! 


If your work levels start to build, you owe it to yourself and your family to start to seriously prioritise and do a great job of a smaller number of things, maybe saying "I'm not going to be able to deal with this in the next few weeks because...".  If they really need it doing NOW, then another route will open up!  It's all about being honest, no-one else knows what your workload is, you have to tell them!


And if you get no support then take the hint and look elsewhere asap.


Last night I helped XX find a solution, PM me or comment below.
