Required Reading – Jordan Rushie on Wisdom

Jordan Rushie writes about what a moron he was as a young associate in, Hubris.

I must confess some bias here. I represent Rushie in one little matter. I am co-counsel with him on multiple matters. But, this piece is why I am proud to call him a colleague. Achievements are great. I have had enough of them to know that they sometimes come from perfectly executed plans. But, I also know that achievements are sometimes the result of bad plans, bad decisions, and dumb luck.

A lawyer earns my respect more when he tells me about his fuck-ups and what he learned from them. Rushie has my respect.

Rushie’s post is a lesson that you can’t learn in law school — not because law school can’t teach it, but because law schools REFUSE to teach it.
