Intro to Happiness for Lawyers

Find Out Why So Many Attorneys Are Unhappy and

How to Stop Being One of Them

We’ve all seen or heard about the studies and surveys. You know, the ones that apparently reveal that attorneys are the most dissatisfied employees on the planet. It’s not a particularly shocking revelation to most of us.

Even if you’re not unhappy in your current job, odds are you know several attorneys who are.  You probably even know a couple who are absolutely miserable. And if you are one of those dissatisfied attorneys, you’re not alone.

You’re also not doomed to feel this way forever.

Fortunately, there are researches who actually study happiness (or the lack thereof) and how to increase it. The strategies they’ve identified for improving feelings of well-being are surprisingly simple — even if they seem somewhat foreign to the legal mind.

I love being able to share the findings of these studies and their real world applications with you. They’ve worked for me, and my hope is that you find some nuggets of usefulness for yourself.
