On Tuesday, the musical Hamilton was nominated for a record 16 Tony awards. And three weeks ago, its creator and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, won the Pulitzer Prize.

And one of the biggest takeaways from the musical, for me, is this question: If the hard-driving Hamilton had given himself the time he needed to recharge, how much better -- and longer -- would he have been able to serve the adopted country he loved so much?
