January 1, 2014: New Job, New Opportunities

January 1, 2014.  If you are doing the work yourself, success can come at a price.  I found that out the hard way by spending all of my time at the office and none of the time on my family or myself.  While on my November cruise, I made the choice to change careers.  I went from a very successful career in the private practice of law to a more personally rewarding but less financially rewarding practice in a new position effective January 1, 2014.  The change has definitely had its plusses and minuses, but here’s a big plus:  I’m much more likely to (a) be alive when I’m 50; (b) not become diabetic; and (c ) not see my weight go up to 300 pounds, all of which were fairly likely on June 24, 2013.  Changing up my law practice was a significant choice for me, but as a result, I have more time with my family, more time to exercise, and stand a much better chance of being alive for many more years.  Had I not started to get in shape, I undoubtedly would have stayed the career path I was on, made more money, but been less healthy and less happy.
