086: The Two Roads To Law Firm Success
The Two Roads to Law Firm Success
I just got back from a vacation to Cabo San Lucas (with no kids!) and had some time to reflect on where I’m at and where I want to go.
I also had some time to think about what’s gotten me to where I am today.
And I came to a realization.
For a long time I’d been on the long road to law firm success.
This is the road where you make progress little by little, sometimes not at all, and really feel frustrated as you move throughout your life as a law firm owner.
No one wants to be on this road.
Lately, though, I’m finding myself consciously making decisions to try to get myself on the short road to law firm success.
This road is faster because it utilizes leverage.
This road is faster because you have the time to do the work that needs to be done to grow the business.
This road isn’t without it’s own risks. There is no such thing as risk-free ownership.
The thing is, though, is that the downside to the short road and the long road are the same – failure.
And, actually, that’s not true.
The downside to the long road isn’t failure. It’s a lack of success. It’s languishing for years doing things you hate, working too hard for too little, and feeling generally morose.
The upside to the short road to law firm success is living your life EXACTLY the way you want.
Now, which seems better to you?
