I’ve discussed the importance of extracurricular activities such as conference networking, article writing, and pro bono efforts.  Those columns fall within a category some may view as eating your professional vegetables.  Career oriented extracurriculars should be enjoyable, but they can also feel like work.

So, as I pen this summer column by a swimming pool, I choose to indulge in the topic of fun.  I believe that fun is critical to your success in the stress filled role of in-house counsel.  You must shut the damn phone off on occasion.  Give yourself the gift of truly free time.
