Seeking Excellence as a Lawyer Means Sometimes Taking a Break
Dated: 11-20-2014

It’s an old truism that happiness can’t be sought directly. Just as looking at the sun can only blind us, seeking only happiness will also distract us from our path. What a lawyer should be seeking in his career isn’t happiness, but excellence — to be the most effective, proficient, and powerful lawyer he can […]
