Lawyers: Plan Your Career Like a Designer and Contractor


A law firm recently asked me to speak to the firm associates on career planning based on my book . (Now available for your or ). When I speak to the associates in September, I will suggest they plan their career like a construction project is planned.

During my long career as a construction lawyer, I learned that design and construction of a magnificent project is similar to the approach taken by successful people to build their careers.

In construction, someone has to take responsibility for the project and decide what is wanted and how it will be designed and constructed. Likewise, you must take responsibility for your career. Only you know what you want and what you are willing to commit to achieve your aspirations.
