Patrick Krill, a lawyer who has a consulting business focused on addiction, mental health and well-being in the legal profession, left all social media, except LinkedIn, during the COVID-19 pandemic. He did it for his own mental health and says any business development benefits that came from Twitter or Facebook were not worth the trade-off.
Also a licensed and board-certified alcohol and drug counselor, Krill learned to be more flexible during the pandemic, with inspiration from Be Water, an ESPN documentary about martial artist and actor Bruce Lee. The title comes from a quote from Lee about the importance of being able to shift in life. According to Krill, that’s an idea that all lawyers should consider.
