Are you happy with your career? Think about it. I mean really think about it. Does it make you happy? Does it fit the life you actually want to live? These are hard questions and sometimes they lead to hard conclusions.
That was certainly the case for Nick Pavildis. He came to the 48 Days Eagles community as a successful attorney with a nice office across from Central Park in New York City. By a lot of measures of career success, he was absolutely successful.
But when he dug a little deeper. Nick found that his career really didn’t fit the life he actually wanted to live.
“I loved the analytics of it and putting all the pieces together. I loved the puzzles, strategies, reading, marketing, writing…all that stuff.
But I hated that, in order for me to win, someone else had to lose.
Even if it’s a settlement, in the law, nobody wins. Everybody loses something. Even if it’s just the amount they pay your firm, everyone loses. And more importantly, my relationship with my wife wasn’t going well – we weren’t getting along, and it was so frustrating.”
