Making the most of your legal career

A few thoughts:

  1. Do something you love
  2. Don’t do it for the money
  3. Service is not an ideal; it’s everything
  4. You are not a machine — physical health begets mental well-being begets brilliant ‘service’
  5. Don’t stick to only one thing; wander far and wide in your practice
  6. Adopt the Golden Rule with colleagues, clients and suppliers
  7. Be kind, thoughtful and appreciative to everyone, especially those people who support you
  8. Don’t treat law like a competitive sport; just because you’re measured by a series of metrics doesn’t mean you have to change your personality to suit
  9. Remember your family is way more important than the job
  10. And finally, have fun; if it isn’t fun, it’s not worth doing.
