In WILL we define work a little differently.
The “WILL work” takes many forms.
Your WILL work could be to…
Take a nap.
Read a beach novel or female driven 19th Century mystery.
Listen to a podcast.
Go out to dinner with your friends or family and leave your phone at home.
Say no when someone asks you to work on a Sunday night or weekend.
These are all examples of potential “WILL work“.
However, at some point in the last couple of years I realized the word “work“ triggered people.
When you’re spending all your time collecting six minute bags of money, (because that’s how I’ve come to think of the billable hour) they want to keep you stressed, on edge and feeling like you’ve got something to prove.
I wonder if that’s why there are so many fire drills and working all night?
Why waste an opportunity to collect a six-minute bag of money?
That’s why WILL work can be to go to sleep.
To shut the computer.
Say, “I’m done for the day.”
Maybe I’m done with Biglaw?
Because the WILL work truly is about exploring what you do want.
About leaving the fire drills for roasting marshmallows over the firepit.
WILL members have started to call it a journey.
At first, I wasn’t so sure about that term. It felt a little bit pulled from a reality television show.
Now I see it’s a beautiful word.
A journey is an adventure, with ups and downs, peaks and valleys.
It’s about enjoying the process and arriving at many wonderful destinations.
It’s about not knowing exactly where it’s going to lead you, and being open to discovering what you do along the way.
So if you want to trade in billable hours for buoyancy, come bob along on this road with us.
