If You Can Work While On Vacation

Sometimes managers are resistant to telecommuting. I know, it's shocking to hear this, but it's true, dear readers. Maybe you've encountered resistance from your manager, who has concerns that you won't be able to do what you need to do from home.

Okay, I hear you. But as this piece in the CNN notes, people are increasingly working from home anyway. And from the beach. And from the middle of the Sahara desert.

And if you can do that while you're on your own time, you could also do it on the company's time. In other words, all things being equal nobody would even notice that you weren't there because you would be working. Just like you do when you check your email at night and on the weekend.
