“If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.”

That’s the standard that Sauk Center, Minnesota attorney John Mayer has lived by throughout his 48 year career as a solo, which will now come to a close with his retirement, according to this profile from the Sauk Herald (11/21/06).  Articles like this make me wonder where I’ll be in 30 years (I’ve already been practicing 18) and what kind of career I’ll look back on.

    Over the years I’ve tried all kinds of “formulas” suggested by various experts but the best, in fact the ONLY reliable predictor I’ve found for determining how successful a lawyer is going to be in his or her career is the degree to which they have an appropriate relationship with their law firm and how well it serves ALL of their goals, not just financial. It’s relatively easy for any competent law firm management/marketing consultant to get a small law firm to perform financially for it’s owner. The other goals are where it can be challenging. But it’s been my overwhelming experience that it’s there, where the real lasting happiness and success comes from.
