I am in the homestretch on the book-writing project! The deadline is tomorrow and I have only four chapters left to write. Time to really focus! (That training as a litigator comes in handy at times.)
For those I haven't already greeted this year: Happy New Year! (At what point do we stop saying that? Is it the middle of January? The end?)
As you might imagine, I'm busy with a lot of activities for 2015. You're not going to read much about those, yet. Mainly, I'm working on my book. (Tentative title) Integrative Law will be published by the American Bar Association later this year. Before that, I need to write it.
Contribute to the book?
Many of us went to law school to change the world, to create world peace, to make a difference. We may not always have careers that do that and we may not share our passions in public - after all, we don't want to appear undignified, idealistic or grandiose. In private conversations, hundreds of lawyers have shared their secret hopes and dreams with me and I have seen many of them fulfill on those early dreams. I've seen the real bigness of lawyers, the power to be evolutionaries and world changers.
Would you like to join me in South Africa?
My circumnavigation is going very well. I've spent time with beautiful people and I've seen some amazing places. If you are interested in the itinerary, it is on the home page of www.jkimwright.com. The map is clearly NOT the territory.
