In the world of IT downtime is bad. It is a term that is used to describe the amount of time that an IT system, be it a sever or workstation, is in a non- functioning state which in turn causes a user or users to not be able to work in a constructive fashion. To be fair, in the IT world some level of downtime is inevitable no matter how hard you work. So based on this, downtime is bad.
So what is the title of this post all about?
Downtime is also the term that we use to describe our time outside of work where we relax and in this context downtime IS good. We live in a fast paced, always connected world where we are expected to always be available there is very little downtime. This is why it is more important than ever to plan downtime in your life. I have realised this more so this week as I have brought the family away for a break. This has been made possible by our good friends at TCG Computer Services and Data Systems who have been available to handle any issues that my business cannot handle. This has meant that I have been able to get some good quality downtime, what plans do you have in place for yours?
