One of the hardest things to do is to actually turn off the lawyer. Let’s face it, no one wants to be married to a lawyer or have a lawyer as a dad or mom, especially if the lawyer is going to bring the adversarial part of the job home. Wouldn’t it be great if we had an “off button” so we could go back to being a real human being at the end of the day?
One of the disadvantages of working from home is that it is so easy to sit down at my desk and slip back into some or other file and work for a few more hours. I often find I have to flip that “off” switch just to preserve what is left of my sanity. It also helps to spend some time with my wife and puppies too. 😉
