Without going into any details, I can tell you that this whole week has been quite an interesting, learning and humbling experience for me. Thankfully, it has nothing to do with Visual Studio 2005 or .NET Framework 2.0, but nonetheless work related.
I always tell myself and others that "The journey is the most important thing - not the destination". I had to keep repeating that to myself several times this week.
If you have looked at what happens in the life of a salmon, they swim afar from home (sometimes several thousand miles) and then at some point in time they start swimming back to their birth place, so to speak, only to spawn and die when they reach the destination. Sort of makes you realize why you have to focus on "the journey is the most important thing" and not necessarily on the "destination".
