I started to think about how things happen as me, Mark and Brian set out with our “perfect law firm” Tuesday morning and Thursday lunch meetings. Each of us has an expectation about the future. Each of us harbors paranoia about the future. We want specific things to happen. We wonder what will really happen. What I realize is that there are many ways to affect the world. Where will this law firm be in six months, a year, three years, five years, and ten years? Will we overcome our fears and realize our dreams?
The answer to the above question depends on our view of how things work and our ability to execute that view.
