Some law firms are only looking for lawyers with over $1 Million, or more, in business. Many mid-sized firms are looking for lawyers who give their personal best and are capable of attracting $1 Million, or more, in business. I prefer to work with those firms and those lawyers.
Are you someone who wants to give your personal best to client development as you have done to other aspects of your career and personal life?
If so, how can you know if you are giving your personal best?
Here’s my thought: A defining ability is the willingness to get outside your comfort zone to be comfortable being uncomfortable. If you are emotionally comfortable, it keeps you from being as creative as you might be.
I owed a great deal of the success and enjoyment of my law practice to being creative and willing to take risks and believing I could achieve a stretch goal.
If you can make it to the edge of your personal or professional abilities, then you know you are giving your personal best. Hope this helps.
