Looks like another fine edition of Law Practice; this one focuses on Big Dream: Midlife Career Transitions. The first article is by a friend with many talents. I have mentioned before at idealawg author and speaker Tama Kieves. This current edition of Law Practice carries an article by Kieves written for those evaluating their careers titled "Advice for the Restless Lawyer: Discovering Your Possibilities." An excerpt:
Please know that your current mood is not indicative of your potential or future. It’s only that it’s hard to feel passionate about anything when you’re miserable. You may start thinking you have no interests or energy. But you may just be beaten down with current circumstances. It doesn’t mean you don’t have a calling with your name on it. It could simply mean you’re tired.
Let’s just look for a moment at what you might do to tweak or refine your current situation. And then let’s talk about how to find out what else you can do instead.
