HOW MANY OF THESE APPLY TO YOU?:

  • Not enough time to get everything done that you want or need to
  • Too many competing demands/feeling pulled in opposite directions
  • Frustrated by lack of autonomy or by systemic dysfunction
  • Tension between you and upper management/administration
  • Feeling overworked and undervalued
  • Bored with your daily life
  • Disconnected from others
  • Lack of balance in life
  • Disillusioned about how life has unfolded

All of us have a tipping point that is unique, but when we hit it, change is no longer optional.  It becomes a matter of survival.  For some, it comes gently, for others, it comes like a landslide.  With escalating demands, decreasing resources, and the inherent adversarial nature of the work, legal practice has become increasingly challenging.  Trying to balance the scales of justice often leads to the loss of the attorney's own balance, and lawyers are hitting their tipping points faster and with more severe consequences.  Over the years, I have worked with attorneys who have tipped in one fashion or another.  Awareness of their dissatisfaction earlier rather than later often was the factor that determined the nature of their 'tipping' experience.  The sooner you acknowledge what isn't working, the less likely you are to have to weather your life falling apart, physically, mentally or emotionally.
