By the way, if you're not happy in your current position, it's time to come join the Happy Lawyers Club. There's a mythical lawyer who manages to do it all and still enjoy life. They don’t worry about minimum billables or partners who expect responses within 2 minutes; they’re too busy playing eighteen holes and sipping Mai Tais in Saint Lucia.
Those lawyers actually exist, and we know them because they worked with us to plan out their career so that when the right opportunity presented itself, they were perfectly positioned to jump.
You can continue to pay hundreds of dollars in therapy to complain about how much you hate your job, or you can start strategizing with us to make a move like our happy lawyers did. It’s your choice.
