For my Administraiton in Student Affairs course, I just finished “The Art and Practical Wisdom of Student Affairs Leadership” (2002). I have to write about practical wisdom for our discussion board. The main theme and advice was balancing. Many of the Chief Student Affairs Officers interviewed in the book talked about how challenging it was to balance their love for their work and to enjoy life outside of work. I feel fortunate that I found a field of work that I love being a part of and spending my day at. Ironically, my time doing jury duty has helped me realize that as much as I love working with college students, there is a world outside of higher education.
