Children are wonderful to watch at play because of their natural curiosity about the world around them. They constantly ask questions and are never satisfied with “just because.” It’s ok if the sky is green and the trees are blue; the world is a bright and vivid place to them, full of opportunity.
By the time we become adults – and I think this is particularly true with lawyers – we tend to stop asking questions and accept things “because that is just how it is.” We develop a personal framework that we view the world through, and it makes us feel comfortable, so we force everything to fit within it. The world becomes black , white, and shades of gray.
Who is happier?
