When I'm not on the road, I feel a bit out of touch with my projects and client.
When I am on the road, I feel out of touch with home.
Don't get me wrong. With email, instant messaging, tele- and web-conferencing, the Internet and cell phones. I am able to keep in contact. I can attend meetings, update projects and whisper good night to my Hubba regardless of where I am. However, there is no real substitute for seeing people in person.
Which means, I always feel out of touch with something that's important to me all the time.
