You’re a Talented Attorney, So What?

There are a lot of talented lawyers. Some are more talented than me and I hate to break it to you, but some are also more talented than you. Simply being talented or intelligent does not mean that your business will always thrive. It certainly doesn’t guarantee that your lights will still be on when Monday arrives or that your staff will all get paid.
“Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There’s plenty of movement, but you never know if it’s going to be forward, backward or sideways.” - H. Jackson Brown Jr., the best selling writer and author of Life's Little Instruction Book

It takes discipline.
You don’t have to be the smartest lawyer in your town to have the type of practice and life that you want. Here’s how you make it happen:
  1. Create goals. You need to decide what you want to accomplish with your business and your personal life.
  2. Believe in yourself. You have to believe that you can achieve the goals you have created.
  3. Guard your time. Time is one of the few things that you will never get back. Don’t hesitate to limit the access people have to you.

Keep in mind that you need to be disciplined, in order to mold your life into what you want it to be. That last thing you want to become is an “octopus on roller skates.”
