I’m not sure about you, but I like the idea of learning from a former attorney. To me, that is a huge step in your learning who you are and what you do. It really helps to read a book or get out of your comfort zone for a change. I was thinking about this recently and it made me think of a line from a book, so I wanted to share it with you.
I have a friend who is a lawyer. I have a friend who is a writer. I have a friend who is an attorney. I have a friend who is a lawyer. I also have a friend who is a lawyer. I have a friend who is a lawyer. I have a friend who is a lawyer.
The point of my friend-lawyer analogy is that we can learn to be great at what we do by doing things that are different from how we would ordinarily do them. To see that, I’ll show you an example.
When I talk about my friend-lawyer friend, I’m referring to the person I’m describing. I say, “I’m going to do this.” I do this. I’m doing this. I’m doing this. I’ve been doing this. I’ve been doing this. I’m doing this. I’ve been doing this. I’ve been doing this.
I think we should take it one step further. We’re not supposed to do the research. We don’t have anything to do with this whatsoever.
Its called the law of unintended consequences, as the saying goes. The reason that this law of our friend-lawyer friend is important is because not all of us have the same level of trust in the laws that govern our day-to-day lives. For example, our friend-lawyer friend is not a lawyer. As such, he’s not bound by any laws, and his law-breaking (or law-filing) actions are not a matter of personal or professional choice.
So the law of unintended consequences is for us to figure out how to figure out how to get ourselves out of this loop and to turn our back to the law.
I have a friend-lawyer friend. He has a tendency to be extremely careless with his law-filing and personal-life. For example, he was recently convicted of domestic battery and domestic assault, two crimes with which he has no connection whatsoever. He was given probation, but is still facing his court fees. And his law firm is still bankrupt.
This is another situation in which the law of unintended consequences is all too easy to fall into. When we are faced with a situation in which we know we may be in trouble, it’s easy to take the easy way out and get a lawyer to help us. And we’ll often find the next thing to do to be just as bad as the first situation.
Another of those situations that comes along with the legal profession. We all know the story of the two lawyers who are sent to prison for murder by their own client, but this is a situation where you don’t even know what the client is going to do with the lawyer, and they’re not even aware of the client.
