How many days did you leave off last year? If you're with the United States, like most workers, you should have at least 3 weeks of vacation. Your company can only give you so much, is this right?

You are wrong.

3 weeks only you, as employees, the company gives you paid vacation. And your actual vacation days has nothing to do with this. According to experience, the length of your holiday really count with your  value for the company. Let me give you a tip: because you value to your boss is more than their worth to you.

early as the beginning of my work life, I had heard this argument, then I do not understand the reason. I had graduated three years, in a large consulting company to do engineering. A time when the mid-nineties, depression, poor performance of the company. Staff morale was low, many people left the company for new opportunities.

One day, I stared at my small backpack, which accidentally enter the eyes, I think, if I wish, only to carry such a package can live for 3 months. … I heard on the mountain in the south of France is very stimulating. Maybe I see flight information …

Two days later, I got a ticket, easy walk led by the office sector. In his greeting to me before I found the look of exasperation on his face flashed. Recently, he must deal with a week left to apply, I think he was worried that things become worse. “Do not worry,” I said. “I'll be back in August.”

At that time what happened. No begging, no explanation, no do. He just asked me before the trip handle matters dealing with a clean head. The company's life is really hard and fast, 3 months later, I return to the company, found that what I have to do is to progress with the work when I leave, like the degree I went to Cancun, Mexico for a week's holiday.

At first, I would like to point out that this certainly is a special case. The company is in difficult times, and I used the advantage of my unreplaceble position. The result is that I learned in the subsequent days of continued use of this advantage. The same thing, and also I completely understand exactly how big the value of a good employee for the company.

Until three years later, I went to a small. Com venture company, there is a very compact team, where I was working for a year, I feel I need to adjust myself for a rest to Central America. I'm going to spent  at least 6 weeks. So I sat down opposite the boss, has been listening to the old tune of his remarks: “My God … We are now at a critical stage … I can not guarantee that it can give you even 3 weeks of leave, you gone for 6 weeks … “I interrupted him directly:

“Well, I really hope I can return to the company after completion. I really like this company, but I feel very sorry I have to leave the …”

Is the case, minor changes in the tone of our conversation have taken place, the next day I received the approval of 4 weeks holiday, and plus 2 weeks paid vacation.

Therefore, you should get this thing on this understanding:
The value of you for your boss is even greater than his to you.
