Things I have learned in my life so far

While looking at the Core77 website I came across a book by Stefan Sagmeister called Things I have learned in my life so far.

He discovered the importance of taking time off work once he returned and found that he had a greater sense of freedom in relation to his clients as well as himself. Every seven years Sagmeister closes his New York studio for a yearlong sabbatical to allow himself and his employees time to refresh their minds.
