But this sum- mer, a growing number of pro- fessionals are strategically using the downtime to rebalance. Experts estimate that when vacation mindset seeps into offices during summer, produc- tivity slips by as much as 20 percent. Rather than give in, some professionals are tackling to-do lists, researching new projects and brainstorming fresh ideas – activities that get ignored during busier times. Duree Ross looks at the slug- gish season as a time to rethink processes at work and home. After she sent her two children to sleep-away camp last week, she took a deep breath and began strategizing how she will break out time from her daily life – chauffeuring kids, spend- ing time with her her husband – to build her Fort Lauderdale public relations/events firm. "My husband and I are going to Colorado and we are going to spend time together like before we had kids. We haven't had that in 11 years," she said. When she returns, Ross will focus her attention on aspects of her business that usually get ignored during busier times, such as updating her bio and website, and retooling market- ing materials. "This is an oppor- tunity to refresh in all aspects of my life."
