Today is the first day of the rest of my life

The last couple of weeks have been abnormal due to the aborted trial, then vacation and closet building.

Today really starts the new routine I have planned for my work to reduce stress. Both new lawyers have started, and I deliberately hired people wirh a combination of experience, fearlessness, and a bit of a chip on their shoulder. I plan to send them into battle while I direct the action from the office. I am hoping that if I can stay a step removed from the fray (particularly spending less time talking to other lawyers) I can reduce stress by being a tactician rather than a fighter.

I have done a good job with diet, and a mostly good job with exercise. Stress is the toughest one for me in light of my job. At cardiac rehab, they gave me a cartoon of a guy banging his head on his desk and some generic stress management platitudes. It really wasn’t that helpful.
