As a leadership lesson, time away can help renew our sense of purpose and refresh our attitude towards work. Sometimes a break leads way to more productivity when we return.
When you are sensing burnout, I would strongly encourage some time away. It may not be a week, but time away from the emails, the phone, and the office is one of the best leadership lessons we can teach ourselves.
