Work-Life Balance On The Beach

My SlawTips post this week considers the thorny question of maintaining work-life balance - with a bit of ocean breeze on the side.
True confession time – I still work a bit while I’m away. I’d rather set aside an hour or so a day while I’m on vacation to deal with emails and urgencies than face 1000 unread emails and 100 pressing tasks on my first day back.

Truth be told, there are worse places to be in the morning than an oceanview cafe on a lazy resort in the sun, wearing my blue shorts and sipping on a coffee while answering emails and watching the world go by.

.... I suppose that every practitioner must come to his or her own terms with what “balance” truly means. For many, remaining 15 percent “on” while away just doesn’t seem like any sacrifice, at all. For others, this is clearly anathema.
Where do you land on this?
