A pause to refresh...............

 Ryan Holiday suggests that we focus on our philosophy, here and here.  Excerpts here:
"I knew that philosophy requires work and self-criticism and one inevitable conclusion – that my problems were almost entirely my own fault. Their resolution requires an active process that only I can initiate."
"Stop and evaluate. Read something that challenges, instead of informs...........We must turn to the practical, to the spiritual exercises of great men and actively use them.  It’s the only way we’ll get anything out of the rest of our efforts.   It simple: stop learning (or “working”) for a second and refine."
