Having been a boss all my life - go play or do anything that is not about the company or anyone to do with the company. I used to go fishing on my own.
Never truly not working because people will always contact you...personally would like a cave in a remote area ...nice and warm...not into roughing it...and pleasant company...no electricity
Go work out, or check to see how everyone is doing and if they need anything.
a boss won't likely do that... i mean owners. they simply can't waste money. but lazy managers might see "calling for a meeting" an alternative for getting totally unproductive.
It's not that their lazy, it's just that they don't care.
...no not lazy...when you manage and/or as well when you own the biz, work doesn't leave your mind for long...and usually you work odd and many hours; not 9 to 5.....so taking a break when it's needed is okay to refresh yourself....it's not a waste of money....and the break is not 'totally unproductive' .....so i just go to a 'meeting'.....
guess you haven't been a boss before.
i see your point. when work seems too much to handle for a time and the brain doesn't keep up at all, a break is necessary. that's why vacation leaves exist... in some cases though, there are managers who waste time (money) even while in the workplace. that's one reason why firing happens...
I used to have those meetings, too. I called them "off-site" meetings.
I go away...no cell phone service, no WIFI service, nothing. Zilch. It's a undisclosed location and I don't return until I'm ready to. What I do there...chill.
Oh, when I can't get away, I stay in the forums until I can't take anymore. (that doesn't happen...which causes a bit of a problem......)
I used to have a boss who would leave for an extended lunch time with her husbands brother... she ended up losing her husband and job!
Being a so called "boss" I can tell you that unfortunately, what you "feel" like doing very rarely enters into it.
She wud have a dnd status on chat and pretend to be attending a conference or presentation online while we know for sure she is just adding songs to her mp3 collection !
