Strommen talked about the importance, especially for professionals, of not taking themselves too seriously and of taking time to stop and enjoy life. He explained that sometimes we get so wrapped up in ourselves and our work that we forget to enjoy our surroundings. “Life is pretty short,” he said, encouraging attendees to relish their time here and to learn to laugh at themselves.
Attorneys, in particular, should appreciate their value, according to Strommen. “And realize that you have something incredible to offer to your clients -– and that is your compassion, your heart, and your ability to listen.”
