Just a Fool in Love

It’s Sunday morning. I’m dictating memos from the client meetings I had this week.  Going over the cases I passed on, and the ones I decided to take.

Seems like there’s always one case that I chose to take where my rational mind is telling me I should have walked away – maybe because the clients are too sketchy, the story is too convenient, or there’s just not enough money to make it worthwhile – probably all of those.

And yet, I took the leap.

It was a feeling that came over me.

What is it about the practice that makes us want to believe that the next new case is going to be a gem?  That it will be fun.  That the evidence will all come together.  And we will make lots of money.

How many times do I have to fall in love with a case, only to wake up some weeks or months later bogged down in a nowhere relationship, wondering WTF was I thinking?

Will I ever learn?
