The value of creative sabbaticals

I'm a huge fan of the work sabbatical. Both Apple and Palm offered them when I worked there, and I got within months of exercising sabbaticals at both before I left for new opportunities. A fact in itself which might argue that sabbaticals have to be offered earlier in an employee's life cycle ;-)

Gina Trapini has a great article on creative sabbaticals, which I found from her Twitter feed. Embedded in that article is a TED video about creative sabbaticals which I found inspiring.

One day I'll take a sabbatical!
