I’ve aged wisely. I wish I could have arrived where I am now more quickly. In the past few years a personal gut-check realigned my mission in life.
Today, my goal in life is to die penniless by leaving behind a viable legacy that makes a difference. So all profit I receive from the law firm goes to Together in Hope (TIH, www.togetherinhope.com ), our public charity. Diane heads up the effort by traveling the world to feed kids, their bellies and their spiritual souls (all comers are welcome, not just Christians). A few years ago we traveled to Africa where we witnessed amazing scenes in Rwanda and Uganda. For me it was a personal game-changer. Now every attorney in the firm works with TIH.
At the end of the day, I have finally come to realize that I have plenty, so it’s time to do more. I have stepped aside from the financial bounty of law to focus on my new mission. Why not quit practicing? I can’t. I love trying important cases. It’s my gift. And it feeds my mission. But when it comes time to cash in on the prize, I’m finally answering a higher calling. It took me long enough, but I finally heard it!
