"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy."

Do you think this is true? How can we make time for more enjoyable things in our lives? What other effects come from overwork? How do we know when we are working too much?

"How do I work? I grope."
- Albert Einstein

"Groping" is the way a blind man might use his hands to feel his way around. In his work, Einstein seems to have felt like a blind man! He was searching for something, but not sure if he could succeed. Do you ever feel that way in your work? Do you think we sometimes miss some great discoveries, because we always want to be certain?

"If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six sharpening my ax."
- Abraham Lincoln

How much preparation and planning do you do in your job? Do you think it's possible to do too much planning? What practical benefits do you get from preparing well?
