Build A Solo Practice - Have You Laid Your Foundation?

The Greatest American Lawyer has just posted a terrific thinking piece called "What Will You Build On Your Foundation?

When you Build A Solo Practice you must first lay that foundation for the future based upon who you are and how you envision your life five, ten, fifteen years down the road.

The dreamers are the ones who are standing on a foundation that could never support their desire.  Their goal is unrelated to their foundation in many instances.  So what makes the difference between a dreamer and an achiever?  A dreamer dreams of possibilities, unlimited in their nature and scope.  An achiever sees the possibilities and either builds the foundation necessary to see those possibilities come to fruition or exploits the opportunities already available to them.  An achiever keeps overcoming the next apparent obstacle, continually building on their foundation.  Their goal may be out in the future, but they are undaunted by moving down the field of play in order to get there.  An achiever realizes you just don’t wake up in the end zone.

Which are you?
