Interesting perspective. The first thing I thought of is fitness training, where you plan your workout schedule so that you peak for your goal event: the Tour de France, Boston Marathon, Mr. Olympia, Tiny State Champs, etc. In that case, the plan is based on the concept of periodization. I never thought of it before, but it makes sense to apply it to your career - to stop and realize where you've come, to gain new perspective, to rest and refresh, and to begin again from a higher level than which you began before. Great stuff....

Good analogy. On a more micro level, that reminds me of a kind of training we did when I ran cross-country called fartlek (literally "speed play"). The idea is to mix hard running in with periods of slow running over the course of one run to help build strength and speed.
