A Change is as Good as a Rest

Since the start of 2016, everything has changed! I have recently changed from legal practice to legal recruitment and started at BCL a few weeks ago. Obviously, this has been a jump outside of my comfort zone. I had been a fee earner for around five years and had never thought about a time when I wouldn’t be! Not only has the work changed but the commute and location. I now travel into the city centre on an earlier train, I work in a different place and my colleagues are from different backgrounds.

What I do now is a very distinct change to what I have been programmed to do in the past, I am effectively learning a different trade. It would have been so easy to plod through each day, turning into months, but I know that this would have made me miserable! I knew it was time for a change and I am so happy that I had the courage to carry it out. It’s new and exciting and I even look forward to a Monday!
If you are having the sinking ‘not done your homework’ feeling on a Sunday and that feeling of dread thinking about Monday morning, then pick up the phone and give me a call! I can relate to exactly how you are feeling. We can work together to identify what it is that you want to do moving forward.

A change is definitely as good as a rest!
