Athletes often observe that each time they advance to the next level of competition, the game “speeds up.” The leap from high school to college ball is a significant one. Players are bigger, faster, stronger, and the game moves at a more rapid pace. The transition from college to pro is even more drastic, as things start to move at a dizzying speed.

As a young lawyer who is now fully engaged in the practice of law, you’ve just turned pro. While there were smart, insightful people in your law school class, this is an entirely different level. The competitive academic playing field is nothing compared to the professional one you’re now playing on. At times you’ll feel like you don’t belong, like you don’t know what you’re doing. But keep the faith. You’ve almost certainly experienced similar discomfort before, and you overcame it. And you can do it again.
