So everyone’s saying, “Let’s have 20/20 vision in 2020!” Okay, I like it. What really makes me laugh, though, is that they all think it’s a cool and novel mantra for the new year! That said, I do believe vision is important. I have experienced in my own life that it’s very important. Focus is vital, or we are simply driven by the wind. In our fast- movingWestern culture, we usually think about vision once a year or so — on Dec. 31 or Jan. 1. Am I right? There’s even a Bible verse that says, “Without a vision, the people perish.” This word “perish” in Proverbs 29:18 means to become

directionless and blown in all directions, like someone’s hair let down in the wind. In eras of my past, when I have either received vision or when I have taken the time to map out a vision, things have been very different — like, a lot better. What we choose to see, to envision on the inside, really matters. According to a guy on the internet (must be true) named Aidan McCullen: 1. Worldwide, only 13% of employees working for any organization are engaged, which means 87% are not

involved in, enthusiastic about, or committed to their work.

2. Companies with engaged employees outperform their peers by 202%. 3. Productivity improves by 20%–25% in organizations with connected employees. 4. An extremely common problem is a lack of vision. People often do not understand nor articulate this, but it is an issue that can cause great dissatisfaction with one’s work (or one’s life in general). That last parenthetical is fromme for this article. Our work is not so disconnected from our lives. If we are working, these tend to go hand in hand. So, if there’s no driving reason (a vision or a “why”) for work in your life, what are you to do? Without a vision, how will you ever know if you ever get “there?”

We promise that while we are working on your case, we don't take inbound phone calls, faxes, or emails about other cases. In fact, our attorneys take no inbound unscheduled phone calls or walk-in appointments whatsoever. This allows for uninterrupted concentration, which lets our attorneys

focus solely on the case they are working on at the moment. Feel free to call your paralegal at his or her direct line any time, and if he or she cannot answer your questions, we will schedule an appointment with your attorney. You can always send an email to your attorney; however,

email is checked no more than twice a day. So, if it's really important, call the office, and we will be happy to set you up with an appointment to discuss your case. Our goal is to be the best we can be and also to be as available as we can be to our clients.
