- that missing a flight because I was too busy eating apple strudel at the lounge was a liberating experience.
- that I am too young to be thinking that a weekend spent lazing around is a good weekend.
- that I am too old to be thinking that a vacation spent in the eat-sleep-eat-sleep routine is a perfect vacation.
- that the best thing that has ever happened to me on the bloody-I-don't-need-this-first-day-of-work-after-a-lazy-vacation was to see a surprise gift waiting for me at the office.

- that one needs to search for lack of purpose. I think search for purpose is making us miserable.
- that giving up favourite things is an easy exercise.
- that easy is not what I like, and hence I am about to give up on giving up.
- that there is no one else I know who needs a sabbatical more than I do.
