Has a significant other ever accused you of not listening? If your answer is “no,” that’s clear and convincing evidence you don’t listen.
Many lawyers are so busy thinking about the next question or thought, that they do not hear what is happening in the present moment. Robert has a favorite line that he uses at many of his speaking engagements and it is simple, yet resounding: “If you want to be a better lawyer, be a better person.” Tools such as mindfulness and meditation can help you be both a better lawyer, and more importantly, a better person—whether it’s to improve focus, or to combat depression or substance abuse.
