I had a conversation with a good friend of mine this week. He's a very successful lawyer, one of the best I know. He's so good that business comes to him. He's also well read and enjoys literature. I invited him to take me on as his coach.
He hasn't taken me up on my invite yet, but he did choose to share with me, and I was impressed; so I share with you.
About two years ago, he was offered some business, six figures worth. He looked into his life, and how he was spending his time, and said to himself, “I could take this on, or I could spend this time reading and exploring literary criticism.” He chose the latter, and since then, he's set aside some time for himself every week to do just that.
