I was penning a seek.com.au ad for a junior lawyer that I am trying to recruit, as our workload demands some modest growth.  As always, this process leads to a moment’s reflection on the workplace I provide and why on earth anyone would want to:

  • work in medical negligence litigation on behalf of Plaintiff’s in WA;
  • why, even if they were brave enough to do so, they would choose to do so for me…

One thing led to another and I found myself ‘wasting’ part of my Sunday afternoon reading Seth Godin’s blog.  Sure some of it is overblown, oversimplified management-speak nonsense…. On the other hand, I must admit I arrived at work today with slightly more spring in my step, determined to take control of my workload and with a noticeable renewed if not refreshed desire to take pride in the work my firm does and the service we offer + (more importantly) actually deliver.

He sure aint the Messiah, but from time to time, Seth does seem to have the ability to hit a certain nail pretty squarely on its head…  For those interested, see his blog at sethgodin.typepad.com.  Apt to my solicitor hiring exercise, see here (amongst many other things, he puts me to shame with his frequency of posts!)
