years ago I returned from a brief vacation to discover that sales of my
software increased while I was gone. The following year I returned from
another vacation and discovered the same thing. Sales went up while I
was away. I joked with my wife that I was bad for sales, and she said I
should take more vacations.
Strange thing is, this has now happened every time I've gone away. For example, I took last week off, and sales went up – way up, in fact. Then they settled back down when I came home.
If I ever take a month off, I'll be rich. [Nick Bradbury]
