How I Got Into Contracts
Contracts. Root canal.
For a lot of people, it would be hard to choose which they'd rather avoid more.
When I was in law school, I dreaded the contracts class. It was mind-numbing, I thought. I never imagined that I would end up loving contracts and making them my whole career.
What changed? In my first job out of law school, contracts were the main work I did, and I did A LOT of them. I realized that I was pretty good at it and that I actually enjoyed it.
Also, I grew up. I changed my mind about what was interesting and what was boring.
We all change our minds as we get older. Otherwise, the world would be full of ballerinas and fire fighters.
How have you changed what think about your profession since you were younger?
