FAQ: How Do You Choose Your Blog (Blawg) Content?

I choose what I think will empower you, often because it inspires and empowers me or someone I am coaching. It’s a bit strange, isn’t it, to see poetry and coaching tools on a lawyer’s website. It’s probably not what you are expecting. Yet it is our expectations that often get us into trouble. Expectations are often based in assumptions, and I like to challenge you to set your assumptions aside. This is consistent with Choice Six of The Seven Choices:

If you must make an assumption, assume you know nothing about anything.

It also stems from my solution-based approach. Yes. What happened is relevant, but a lot less than you might think. It is what you do with the experience that makes the most difference in your life. So, I ask difficult questions to get you thinking. I present alternative views on hot topics. I provide you with Third Ear Conflict Resolution exercises to help you develop skill in resolving the many conflicts life will inevitably throw your way.

I will still give you some general legal information to help you identify when to call a lawyer and not go it alone, but I am committed to giving you more than you ask for. Ideally, I will give you exactly what you want and more than you think you need.

My goal is for each of us to have a life more amazing than we imagine is possible, regardless of where we are. Of course, I will also ask each of us to lead from wherever we are. Will you?
