President's Message


“Man... sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”        --Dalai Lama

You worked hard in high school to get the grades you needed to get into the college you wanted.  You worked hard in college to get top grades so you could get into law school.  You worked hard in law school to get into the firm you wanted, then plunged into working long hours to make your billable quota, and begin your quest for partnership.   Or you’ve set up your own practice, imagining that being the boss would be great, and have discovered that the boss works harder than the employees. Once you achieved one goal, your attention shifted to the next one, all the while imagining a fantastic reward at the end, a reward which may or may not be realistic or satisfying. When does it stop? Have you taken time to appreciate your successes?   Have you stopped to think about what is really important to you, and whether the goals towards which you’re working are consistent with your personal values? Is the reward worth it? Have you thought about what it’s going to take, in terms of your time and energy and the sacrifices you will have to make, to achieve the goals you’ve set? Are you keeping your balance along the way, or are you barreling ahead without taking time for yourself, your friends, or your family?  The time of your life is your ultimate currency. How will you spend it?
