At the End of the Day
A very common phrase used to describe the final or ultimate result, or the urgency of a priority. In other words, a very important point we can't forget.

It's also used as a phrase used to attempt summarisation, introduce an air of finality and perhaps close off certain avenues of discussion; since most consultants’ days do not end with the setting of the sun, at the end of the day most of them are still working.
