What Really Matters?

Few who truly matter in your life will remember:

You’re salary

How busy you were

How many hours you worked

How many cars you owned

Those who really matter in your life will remember:

How you made them feel

The time you spent with them

If you kept your word

If they could count on you


The Surprising Benefits of Online Communities: Why They May Be Better Than In-Person Connections

My team in our consulting department completed a research project for a client on the value of online communities and events moving forward in 2023. The client is planning to create new virtual office spaces and holding several large online community events.

Some of my team’s findings surprised us and convinced us that in many instances, digital communities and relationships offer even more value than traditional versions. Especially in these post epidemic times.

While we put together a detailed report for the client, I did want to share a summary of a few highlights with you in today’s new article on LinkedIn.

In a world where knowledge is like a vast ocean, I believe it’s our responsibility to sail through it and explore its depths. Like a sailor who relies on the stars to navigate, we too can rely on the wisdom of others to steer our course. Learning from others is like having a compass, a map, and a guide all in one.

Over the last three decades of practicing law and being an investor and entrepreneur, I’ve tried to walk my talk and learn from others. By tapping into the knowledge of those who have gone before me, I’ve been able to save time, avoid pitfalls, and accelerate my journey towards success.

Now, I’m trying to give back though my daily posts and comments on LinkedIn. Start here…

Last Week Was Tough

Do you ever get tired, drained, and exhausted from dealing with the never-ending barrage of professional and personal adversity? Do you struggle to balance your career’s demands with your loved ones’ needs, leaving you feeling like you’re constantly falling short?

For me, last week was a prime example of that. The picture above depicts how I felt.

I was faced with complicated court cases, demanding clients, and difficult opposing counsel. At the same time, I was helping a family member in a time of need.

It was and is a tough road, but one that taught me valuable lessons about myself, my profession, and what it takes to be successful in both the law and in life.

With the above in mind, I wanted to share some thoughts with you.

The first lesson I learned was the importance of resilience. No matter how difficult the battle, it’s crucial to keep pushing forward, to keep fighting for what you believe in. As a lawyer, this means being tenacious in the face of adversity and never giving up, no matter how challenging the opposition. At the same time, this also means being resilient in the face of personal struggles, whether supporting a family member in need or dealing with the ups and downs of everyday life. Rarely is life presented to you in a vacuum with single-issue challenges.

The second lesson I learned was the power of self-reflection. When faced with adversity, it’s easy to get caught up in the heat of the moment and react impulsively. But taking a step back, reflecting on your actions, and examining your thought process can help you gain a clearer perspective and make better decisions. This self-reflection allows you to grow and learn from your experiences, making you stronger and more capable of handling similar challenges in the future.

The final lesson I learned was the value of perspective. In the midst of a difficult battle, it can be tempting to focus solely on the outcome and lose sight of the bigger picture. But having perspective means being able to see the situation from all angles, including the impact it may have on others, and making decisions based on what’s best for all involved. This approach leads to more well-rounded, holistic solutions that consider all parties involved and lead to more successful outcomes.

So, how do you put what I went through and the lessons I was reminded about into practice in your own life? How do you become more resilient, self-reflective, and focused on perspective, despite the adversity you may face?

For me, the answer is simple: double down and focus on hard work, determination, and a willingness to face my challenges head-on. It’s not always easy, but it is always necessary.
