A Lawyer’s Guide to Creating a Life, Not Just a Living:

By Paula Black

I bring you 22 lawyers and 4 experts. They tell you what they overcame to have a sense of fulfillment, what they discovered about themselves and how they achieved their equilibrium.They were optimistic and didn’t listen to the naysayers, not the ones in their heads or anyone else. They were willing to make mistakes, poised to adjust and learn from them. They developed skills they needed to achieve their dreams. They all illustrate my ten bedrock principles that shaped their lives and seeded their joy and fulfillment. These principles can do the same for you.

Bravo for this book!


★★★★★ Change your mindset!!

By Justin on October 16, 2018

I have followed Paula Black for several years now. She is on a mission to help lawyers get out of the traditional "lawyer mindset" that so many of us succumb to; i.e., get the best grades, work for the big law firm, get a big salary. Then, start your own firm, bring clients with you, work 70-80 hours a week, and keep going until you can't go any more. I know all too many lawyers who have gone this route and feel stuck. Paula believes there is another way and in-fact a better way. I happen to agree with her. I love being a lawyer and love what I do. This book is a great reminder that there are other lawyers who love what they do as well. Paula helps lawyers and business professionals, break out of traditional limited thinking and realize that you can live a better and more fulfilling life. Highly recommend!
