The litmus test for leaving the law

Many of you have spoken with me on the free consults I provide for Leave Law Behind readers and then have moved onto joining the Leave Law Behind Program.

And one of the first questions I ask on these calls is “Why do you want to leave the law?”

This week, I asked that same question on a call to a fellow Leave Law Behind reader and he answered “I don’t want to turn out like my boss.”

It’s a good litmus test. Look at the attorneys around you, the attorneys you work with, especially those a few years and a few titles ahead of you.

What is their health like? Are they enjoying themselves? Do they have the values and principles you want to maintain? Do they spend quality time with their family? Are their priorities in line with yours? Do they work with meaning and purpose?

If not, take this realization seriously, because this is your future staring clearly right at you.

Learn how to overcome your fears to leave the law behind by scheduling a free phone call with me, Casey.

Also, the Bar Association of San Francisco invited me to speak on Thursday March 1. Come in person or watch online.
