"Do What You Love, But Don't Jeopardize Anyone You Love; Including Yourself."
Lesson 33 from Unlocking Your Rubber Room was just quoted on Twitter by a fellow tweeter:
@Perry_Binder "Do What You Love, But Don't Jeopardize Anyone You Love; Including Yourself." - Perry Binder J.D.
My reply back:
Good words R far gr8er than the utterer!
Lesson 33 - Do what you love but don’t jeopardize anyone you love. Including yourself.
Recognize and assess the risks in every major decision you make. And how they affect those around you.
When I left the full-time practice of law to teach, I was single and had no children. Would I have made such a career transition if I had a spouse and two kids at the time? I’d like to think so because in the end, career satisfaction is one key to personal fulfillment. Some opportunities are rare and don’t come around often. The difficult part is learning whether to jump at or pass on an adventure when your responsibilities require the support of those around you and a closer look at risk and reward.
