I'm rereading The Firm of the Future: A Guide for Accountants, Lawyers, and Other Professional Services by Paul Dunn and Ron Baker. I don't know Paul Dunn's works that well, but I've read many books by Ron Baker and think he has very good ideas on the profession.
One interesting thing about the book is that they tell you who is writing. The following is by Ron Baker, on page 5:
No one enters the profession in order to bill the most hours.
I know I didn't. I entered the profession because I enjoyed the subject matter. I now find I get great satisfaction from helping the businesses and people we work with.
I think this statement by Ron Baker is going to have a deep impact on me.
