Did Tim really get more done when he got back from vacation, or did it take him twice as long to get back into the flow of things?  

We look forward to more studies being done that will put to rest the age-old debate of whether more paid vacation days correlate strongly with more efficiency, and in that vein, here is an article about a very small sample study that tackled that question head-on.

Our favorite part:

So while our particular study did not find that having more vacation reduced stress, we do see evidence that it results in greater productivity at work all the same. In other words, it’s not that taking a break will refresh your brain and let you get more done; it’s that simply spending less time at your desk forces you to waste less time.
