Resigned to Being in the Rut?

Lawyers can easily find themselves, very early in their careers, in a predicament of epic proportions. It happens when you don’t know what to do next, and end up in a rut — a long, deep track made by the repeated passage of the lawyers (um, vehicles) who went before. For our purposes a rut has a number of relevant characteristics: • It begins at the start of the road. As a result, you have a tendency to find yourself in it very quickly. • Once you’re in it, it can be hard to get out without a lot of frustration. • Unless you get out of it, you’re going to end up at the same destination as everyone else.
