Best Blog Posts in December 2017: GC Thinking and Finding Fulfillment with Success

This is my 61st post in a series of monthly features that I have dubbed “Best of My Blog Roll.” The concept is simple – at the end of a month I peruse my own blog roll (see that column on the right) for material created by other bloggers that I think is most worthy of sharing with others, and then I report on it here.

Reviewing blog posts for the month of December 2017, I have chosen to highlight the following blog posts:

  1. A post on Adam Smith, Esq. entitled “Reflections of a GC,” which contains 10 things a GC wishes that outside counsel knew. At least half of the 10 items are refrains that I have heard from other GCs that I have interviewed, and thus, I think law firm attorneys and marketers would be well-served to read them.
  2. A post on the Ackert Advisory entitled, “How to Get Superior Results,” which offers some practical tips on taking some chances on new ways of doing business development.
  3. A post on the Cordell Parvin blog (which Cordell says could be his last post) entitled, “Success and Fulfillment,” which covers a subject that is critically important to lawyers – finding BOTH success and fulfillment in a career.  I love how Cordell pays homage to his parents in teaching him how to find his path, saying: “My dad taught me to live, my mom taught me to love. My dad taught me to be successful, my mom taught me to be fulfilled. My dad taught me to be confident and to make my own way, my mom taught me to be humble and faithful.” Thanks for sharing, Cordell. We all need this kind of balance to thrive !
