Finding My Purpose and Defining My Success - A Practitioner's Perspective
Presenter : Ms. Sitpah Selvaratnam
Posted in : General
CPD Activity (1.0 credit)
About the Course
The practice of the law is challenging; not just in the mastery of the law and advocacy, the management of clients and law firms, but also in the assimilation of the practice of the law with life. Ultimately, a legal career is not separate from life; it is an integral aspect of the sense of fulfilment and wellbeing of every legal practitioner.
As the size of the professional membership grows, and the demands to be seen and heard in a particular way appear more daunting, it may be time for some essential markers to be personally placed upon introspection and self inquiry. Finding purpose in what we do gives meaning and satisfaction.
Remaining true to ourselves as professional individuals, and not being limited by the lack of perceived acceptance or validation from others, is very important.
Let’s take an hour to re-examine our purpose and define our success to truly appreciate where we are and where we want to be.
