In other years my birthday of May 31 has coincided with magnificent life events such as my law school graduation. And in other years, Memorial Day with big parades and barbecues in the USA and the opening of the outdoor swimming pool. My birthday is also a…

The Road Less Traveled: When You’re Forced Off Your Narrative Arc, and What To Do

In my day job as Associate Director of Talent at Bliss Lawyers, many of the attorneys that I speak with describe how an alt-path gives them the flexibility to optimize their lives. BigLaw hours no longer constrain them from nurturing a side hustle into profitability, pursuit of a sub-three hour marathon, writing and publishing that novel that's been swirling around in their heads, traveling abroad, or assuming a role as family caregiver.   But many of the people I speak with - including myself - were forced off the traditional path.  Like Westworld hosts, we come into this world with a narrative arc, except one…

One striking difference between Europe and the USA is their election laws. Many nations in Europe are still ruled by a Royal family: Netherlands, Belgium, Monaco, Sweden, Denmark and Spain just to name a few.  This alters the perspective regarding national elections: electing members of a Parliament and local officials is relatively close to the wishes and desires of the local electorate because in the big picture the larger governing structure remains overall the same. And, the pan-European election system for the members of the European Union government in Brussels and Strasbourg and the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers in…
