I was in Denver for a board meeting and conference last week. I went down for breakfast and the top-tech-tips session on the third morning. I remarked that I was skipping the morning plenary and would probably go to the gym and do my half-hour of penance. The executive director of the organization looked at me and said, "take a hike," it is a beautiful morning in a wonderful setting - you should get out of the hotel and go for a nice long walk. And so I did,. Sometimes the best advice is "take a hike!"
