Make Your Practice A Positive Adventure


A couple of weeks ago I headed up to Lake Tahoe for our daughter's softball tournament. We arrived on Thursday, and headed back home on Monday. It was a great trip! The lake was her usual, stunningly beautiful self. The weather was awesome. Heavenly Village at Stateline had plenty to offer (although the casinos were not nice to me). I do believe the best part of the adventure was playing hooky from work. Sitting at the cafes socializing with friends when I could have been at my desk at work was a lot of fun! We family law lawyers lead stressful professional lives. Checking out once in a while can be a real refresher.

But how about when we cannot get away? How do we stay fresh and excited about our work? John Jantsch has published a great article on his Duct Tape Marketing blog about business as the ultimate adventure. According to John "we can either choose to look at this business we’ve created as an awesome adventure or a remarkable imposition, but make no mistake, it’s simply a choice in how we view our life. . . You can make your business fully alive by stuffing it with adventure and life or you can let it suck the life out of you – because, frankly, it’s capable of either or both."

It is a great article, with great ideas for staying enthusiastic at work! Please click here to read the original article.
