I have this thing that I do sometimes where I become frustrated, impatient and even slightly aggressive in situations where I'm working with people to manage complex problems and navigate complex, protracted, big-picture strategies. These fluid, ethereal situations are never easy to navigate. Basically, I want to yell out: "Why can't we all just move forward with this idea which we all think is great and that we all seem to want, even though the path forward doesn't necessarily please 100% of everyone at the table, and we all understand that nothing can ever please everyone all of the time in every way...so, c'mon now - 76% consensus is still a B+! So let's do this already!!"
I see music as a vehicle for a soul's expression of itself. And I think that musicians and artists innately know what it means to bare their souls. More than that, that they know how to do so without judgement.
That's why I love my music clients.
When did we learn that there is only black and white? When did we forget that shades of grey exist? Somewhere along the way between law school and the law firm we forget that law needs to be applied and it’s not just something theoretical that only we as lawyers need to understand.
