“There is no failure except in no longer trying.” – Chris Bradford
So, today, October 22, 2014, I sit in my office, and I wait.
If you think lawyers are inefficient on their own, you should see how productivity plummets with the added pressure of waiting for the results of a bar exam.
Over the summer, I sat for the Nevada Bar Exam. It was one of the most grueling experiences I have ever had the misfortune to participate in.
Why you may ask? For a client. A client is opening operations out in Nevada – and not Clark County or Reno – Esmerelda County.
They need me to be able to represent them in court and in land matters.
While my poor, long suffering wife made me promise that after California I was done. Until now, I have kept that promise. Then my client came to me, and asked very sweetly.
And so, here I sit.
As the hours tick on, I become less and less productive. 6pm will not come soon enough.
In the meantime, we offer up this post as good wishes to all those that took the exam for an easy pass.
For those that are not so blessed, take this post as encouragement to redouble your efforts and take the exam again.
The only true failure is to not try.
As we say in our firm: “With your shield, or on it.”
