An important life lesson for software developers

Tekpub has been acquired by Pluralsight.

But that’s not the lesson.  Read this part:

“I tried those things and some of them worked, some didn't but all in all things were going along just fine... until...

This last summer I spent a good solid month with my family, taking some time away from production and general business "stuff" - it was the longest time I've been away from work since... I don't know when. It was one of the best vacations I've ever had and my wife and kids noticed the change in me and they loved it. I wish I could bold/highlight/expand that last part to give it all the gravity in the world. I've asked a lot of my family over the last 5 years, and I forgot what it was to be "dad" and "Rob" without the constant stress of running my own business.”

I leave it as an exercise for the reader to figure it out.
