What are your next opportunities?

Written by Reynolds Defense Firm

On March 26, 2019

When I was in college and then law school, life was divided by semesters – every few months there was a complete turnover in my classes and schedule. I got to find new routines and take on new assignments.  When I started working at the Multnomah County District Attorney’s office out of law school though, life didn’t have regular checkpoints anymore, and I found it difficult to not have that change to look forward to. Over time I adjusted, just like everyone else does, but the danger of adjusting into a regular routine is that sometimes you can forget to lookup. And when you finally do look up, you might find that you’ve been on cruise control instead of really living.

So use this transition from Winter to Spring, to take an inventory – what’s going on with you, your work, and your family? What things are going well for you, and as importantly, what things aren’t? You may have set goals for yourself at the beginning of the year. How are those going? Is it time to re-evaluate your objectives? This inventory can give you the chance to see if you are getting what you want out of life, or if you want to make changes. As always, be grateful for the good, and take your problems head-on. I think the old saying is true – your biggest opportunities in life often arrive gift wrapped in problems…So, what are your next opportunities?
