Treat yourself to some free time

Shutting the phone off is a good career move

I’ve discussed the importance of extracurricular activities such as conference networking, article writing and pro bono efforts. Those columns fall within a category some may view as eating your professional vegetables. Career-oriented extracurriculars should be enjoyable, but they can also feel like work.

So, as I pen this summer column by a swimming pool, I choose to indulge in the topic of fun. I believe that fun is critical to your success in the stress-filled role of inside counsel. You must shut the damn phone off on occasion. Give yourself the gift of truly free time.
