Carl Ficks: Well-Being in the Law

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Carl Ficks discuss:

  • Giving it your all in all that you do.
  • The art and practice of lawyering.
  • Everyone has the same 168 Hours in a week.
  • Resources available to lawyers to better your life.

Key Takeaways:

  • Regardless of what your gift is, if you don’t bring your best effort, you are going to sacrifice it.
  • The state bar associations are getting into lawyer well-being. This is a great change and is necessary in this profession.
  • Self-care is not selfish. It is great for your mental and physical well-being, but it also allows you to show up more fully and better for the others in your life, professionally and personally.
  • You can’t do business development effectively if your mind, your body, the way you feel, and the way you’re running your time isn’t working.

“In order to be in service to others, you first have to be.” —  Carl Ficks
