A small baby step in leaving the law is to create a bucket. A bucket is a new legal person, entity, component, space or building block that you can create to begin the process of redesigning your life. It’s a start.
Creating a bucket is easy. Just think it up and it is (“. . . a coaching practice for lawyers . . .”). Give it a name, and it is even more tangible (“. . . Leave Law Behind . . .”). Print up business cards, set up a website and you can see it even more clearly. Mull it over, think it through, nurture it, share it. Create it. Fill it. Empty it. Ship it – get it out the door. Change the contents. Rename it. Create more than one. Re-ship it.
The sole purpose of a bucket is to be filled . . . with work, clients, products, money, satisfaction and hope.
It takes nothing to create. But it puts a stake in the ground. It makes things happen.
