My days have been filing up quickly. Lately it seems that if I’m not in a meeting, then I’m on a telephone conference. Throw in the impromptu meetings with clients that need to drop in for a variety of reasons, the days seem to fly by in the blink of an eye. Sometimes at the end of the day, I wonder if I’ve accomplished anything at all.

Luckily today I know I accomplished something. Today I had a great meeting with a client and his vocational counselor, and we exchanged a lot of important information. After the meeting my client and I had a good conversation about his opinions and he was able to confidently make an important decision that will, no doubt, impact the rest of his life.

Getting to be a trusted adviser at a critical time in my clients’ claims and lives is a source of great pride and accomplishment for me. Knowing that my client and I were on the same page, and that he trusted me enough to be able to make his own decision with complete confidence has made me feel like I accomplished a lot today.
