The reality is that some people are good at picking and choosing, while others are good at following their own advice. I am not a lawyer. However, I do know that you can learn a lot from reading legal books and practicing law, from watching attorneys and law school professors, and from reading legal publications, especially the ones from the National Legal Directory.
I wrote a post on how to pick the best lawyer, but I will say that I’d take the advice of a lawyer over the advice of a friend who claims to be a lawyer. I’m a bit of a control freak, and it’s hard for me to pick the best lawyer who I can trust to do what I want them to do. It’s much, much better to get advice from a friend who you can trust.
This has been a hot topic for a while now on this website, and I want to thank everyone for helping me learn how to be more aware of when I’m on autopilot and to remind myself to keep my focus on a goal.
While in some cases you should always be on autopilot, in others you may well be able to control the process. For example, in court, a lawyer is often involved in a lot of legal work, and you can have a good lawyer on your side. A good lawyer is also likely to be able to argue your side of the case in court, and you can ask for the case to be dismissed if you don’t like the way it was decided.
I mean, how do you say this? I think that if you stop and ask yourself, “Am I on autopilot?” you’ll find that you are.
I just wish I had a good lawyer. I am in no way a lawyer, but I do have a good sense of what is and isn’t legal based on my job and my reading. I can tell when something is against the law, or doesn’t follow the rules. The thing is though that my job and my reading doesn’t always coincide with the law. Sometimes the law is so clear and there is nothing you can do about it. So you have to be really careful.
I know some people who work for various government agencies all over the world, and they tell me that their job is to follow the law. I understand their job, they are trying to do the best they can for their country, but still, I wonder if that is really the right thing to do.
I think it is a little different in America. The laws in America are pretty clear and they have been since the beginning. The problem is that our government has become so big and so complex that we cant keep up. We are now so divided that there is no one body that can make all the rules. So you have to follow the law, but there is no one who can tell you what the law actually means.
It’s easy to say that it’s better to obey the law than to not obey the law. That’s one thing you can say about our entire government. That is also one of the things that worries me about our country. When people talk about following the law, they basically mean obeying the government. Our government has become so big and so complex that we cant keep up. We are now so divided that there is no one body that can make all the rules.
With the rise of the internet and the rise of social media, our laws are often being ignored. A lot of laws are made behind closed doors and the laws are often ignored. They are often made by people who have a stake in their own safety (as lawyers, they are often in a position of power over people) and thus in the laws they make.
