How To Do It

A parable…


“Young lawyers frequently come to me and say, ‘How can I quit practicing law and become a billionaire instead?’ I say, well, it reminds me of a story they tell about Mozart.

A young man came to him, and he said, ‘I want to compose symphonies. I want to talk to you about that.

Mozart said, ‘How old are you?’ ‘Twenty-two.’

And Mozart said, ‘You’re too young to do symphonies.’

And the guy says, ‘But you were writing symphonies when you were ten years old.

He says, ‘Yes, but I wasn’t running around asking other people how to do it.’”
