    Confront Problems and Do Not Be a Dabbler

    By Jul 30,2021

    How many people have you known in your life who started something then decided to stop it and try something else? A lot of people do this their entire lives, and it’s a process of starting, stopping, and trying something else again and again and again. Pretty soon, their career is over, and they are left with a career of mediocrity where very little was achieved. There are a lot of people out there who “dabble” and who never commit with anything.

    The Best Way to Prepare for a Job Search and Interviews

    By Jul 20,2021

    Several years ago when looking for a position in Los Angeles, I interviewed with numerous law firms. In virtually every one of these interviews I ran across an attorney who knew not one, not two, not three—but numerous, numerous attorneys in my current firm. If this is the case in a market the size of Los Angeles (and the market in Los Angeles is huge), I cannot even imagine what it must be like in smaller markets. For example, I’m from Detroit. I grew up in a suburb of Detroit. When it came time for me to decide

    Are You a Quality Product?

    By Jul 23,2021

    One of the most amazing things about living where I do, in Malibu, California, is observing how well many people treat themselves and how seriously they take themselves. I know numerous people who have the following: • Personal trainers (to motivate them to workout hard) • Nutritionists (to recommend diets) • Chefs (to cook the food) • Stylists (to take them shopping for clothes) • Anti-aging doctors (to prescribe various hormones) • Psychologists (to talk through problems with) • Psychiatrists (to prescribe various mood altering...
