When you're a corporate lawyer, it's easy to think that people are only into you because of your business connections. But remember how filling out all those forms to incorporate a new company effectively brought someone closer to her dream of owning a business. Remind yourself that where other people entered the law because they liked to fight each other in court, you became a corporate lawyer to make deals that leave all parties better off. Don't forget that all the time you spend scrutinizing and clarifying your client’s intentions in a contract is money in the bank come the time of a potential dispute. You won't need the court because both parties resolved their differences long ago in your boardroom.
