It's important to pause and evaluate a day's work, to recognize when enough action items are complete, and acknowledge when it's time to power off.

The response to my reflections on college life was heartwarming, I'm grateful that so many of you shared thoughts on what you miss from those 'good old days'. It's nice to know that we have these feelings of nostalgia in common — and certainly that there are ways to incorporate parts of what we miss from college in our lives as adults today.
