Once again, the folks over at the ALPS411 Blog have let me invade and post some thoughts from the world of solo construction practice. This time, they asked for (and I hope I delivered) some of my better thoughts on “letting go” of work once the work day is done. Here’s a bit of an excerpt:
One of the hardest things for a solo construction attorney like me (or any other lawyer) is how to “let go” and leave the office at the office (or the [wherever you may work]). As conscientious professionals we spend our days obsessing about other peoples problems, advising clients as to the best way to deal with their particular circumstances, fighting it out with other lawyers and running a law practice. It’s no wonder that we develop a semi-obsessive mindset that, while part of what is necessary to be a successful solo practitioner (along with a reasonable web presence, good marketing strategy and, as should be obvious, a great legal acumen) does not help if carried back to the spouse and kids.
