Sometimes when things seem a bit too stressful at the office, when the hectic pace of events becomes almost overwhelming, it helps to look at a bigger picture. The sentiment expressed at the end of a David P. Stern column (Physics Today, May 1993, p. 63) is heartening:
"[This job] is a great privilege. Be worthy of it. Most of humanity spends its life doing boring repetitive tasks."
