I wanted to do things differently. I was confident that the vision I created of a different kind of law firm would make me, my clients, and my team happier. Once I saw a better law firm in my mind, I felt a strong sense of purpose and certainty. My newly created vision energized me. I was fired up and ready to go. Then, life took over. Client deadlines came and went. Family emergencies popped up. Financial pressures distracted me from thinking long-term. The vision faded in the chaos of my life. I wasn’t making the progress I imagined.
