Yesterday I spent the morning in a virtual probate courtroom. What an interesting experience. In thirty years of practicing law in person, I don’t think I ever saw the nooks & crannies of people’s courtroom faces as clearly as I did yesterday.

It was interesting that immediately, I started to judge. Do you do that? I decided which lawyers were comfortable and which ones weren’t prepared. I determined who was smart and who wasn’t. I even judged a whole bunch of things about the judge.

Mindfulness is an invitation to see what we see, but not decide, determine, or judge. The question that comes up for me is, is this useful in the courtroom, or not? I checked that out on today’s podcast. Enjoy.
