Two Sure Ways to Not Reach Your Potential


A young lawyer recently shared this thought with me:

Most young lawyers are still fairly apathetic and are comfortable to just get by or let others "feed" them. The lawyers who are more aggressive and want to step up and be leaders tend to be fairly egotistical types who "already know it all" and aren't very receptive to coaching.

Do either of these descriptions fit you? Do you believe most young lawyers are either "fairly apathetic," or "already know it all?"

Lawyers who never reach their potential fit into those categories. I have met, worked with and even coached many who are either too content, or have stopped learning.
