“LEAVE THE OFFICE EARLY” DAY GIVES ANYONE TIME TO BECOME A PUBLISHED AUTHOR
June 2, 2009 [Raleigh, NC] - Recessionary climates have everyone putting in overtime. Even when people aren’t at work, they are attached to their phones and computers and are checking emails or sending messages. Vacations have become a foreign concept. Lulu.com, the premiere digital marketplace for creative content, reminds everyone that June 2 is Leave the Office Early Day, the perfect occasion to take some time to finish -or start- that novel or those long overdue family photo books, recipe books, music projects, and any other book ideas you’ve been putting off for awhile.
Leave the Office Early Day was created by author and productivity expert, Laura Stack. This holiday is not about slacking off but rather adjusting priorities temporarily and taking advantage of some much needed personal time. Take Back Your Time, a U.S./Canadian initiative group, conducted a survey of America’s workforce last year that showed 26% of Americans took zero vacation time. A Conference Board survey states 60% don’t plan to take time off in the next six months. Many could not afford a vacation even if they had the time, which makes Lulu’s easy, interactive publishing process the perfect solution. Best of all, there is no cost to create and every opportunity to profit so you can put away a little money for that vacation you actually will take some day.
With companies outsourcing labor and cutting costs, the current work atmosphere can be a little intimidating. Everyone knows that regular time off can help create a happy balance between life and work that improves work place productivity in the long run. So go ahead, start today, with the help of Lulu.com and take a little time for yourself on this Leave the Office Early Day - we won’t tell!
