Welcome to Wednesday of Well-Being Week in Law.
Today’s topic is Intellectual Well-Being, with the mantra “Engage and Grow.” We’re focusing on striving for continuous intellectual engagement and growth in our work and personal lives.
Here’s a video in which I go into more detail. The video ranges from my personal (and borderline frivolous) engagement and growth – venue in federal criminal cases and mastering the Electric Slide – to a serious discussion of Impostor Syndrome.
I’d love to learn your thoughts & strategies for intellectual growth. Please consider joining this Zoom discussion at noon to share & listen as others share theirs!
