The Decade Past and Next

As the calendar flips to 2020, I’m jotting down some thoughts on the past decade and the one ahead. The past ten years were quite eventful, with more ups than downs, but I’m still not quite living my best life as I write this. Fortunately, my plans to do so are taking shape, and there’s reason to be optimistic that the upcoming decade will be even better. And hopefully that happens sooner rather than later!

Wrong Way Sign

I recently received an email from someone looking to hire the head attorney for an early-stage company. Normally, I wouldn’t give headhunter emails much thought, but this email came from the experienced CEO of a fast-growing startup that’s backed by an impressive list of investors. I ended up politely declining the job opportunity, but it prompted a thought exercise to help clarify the direction I want to move toward.
