Why don’t we take all of our paid leave?

Never take vacation? Dread the pile-up of work if you do? Feel no one can do your job if you leave? That you’re indispensable? Or worse, do you worry that if you take a break, no one will think you really are? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re not alone. In fact, 40 percent of all Americans don’t take all of their vacation, leaving 430 million days of unused paid vacation a year, according to the U.S. Travel Association.
