Breakfast Club (1985)
They were five students with nothing in common, faced with spending a Saturday detention together in their high school library. At 7 a.m., they had nothing to say, but by 4 p.m., they had bared their souls to each other and become good friends. To the outside world they were simply the Jock, the Brain, the Criminal, the Princess and the Kook, but to each other, they would always be the Breakfast Club. Written by Anonymous
LESSON: You never know how the people you meet will change your life and affect your career. Every event you attend, whether you are forced to attend or choose to go, is an opportunity to meet someone who will change your life. Will they introduce you to your future spouse? to your future boss? Will they tell you about a trip they recently went on and inspire you to go as well. You have something in common with everyone in the room; you are all there. That is even more true if you are at a work related event.
Meeting new people, those outside your circles can change your life. After law school many of my friends married other lawyers. Yes, they were from the same circle, they understood each other. I recently met an archaeologist. It was thrilling to talk about something new and also have what I do be interesting to someone else. Everyone knows or needs a lawyer, it’s good for business development to talk about what you do in a positive way.
