Apply the thoughts of one of our brightest thinkers about the future of the legal profession to the lucid ideas of one of our brightest thinkers about the medical world (and beyond), and what do you get? Jordan Furlong's "Why Lawyers Don't Innovate," a short meditation on Atul Gawande's New Yorker piece, "Slow Ideas," which explores why some good ideas take off and others have trouble getting off the ground. Simple takeaway? Change requires us talking to one another about what's really going on. Both pieces are well worth reading. Best line from Fulong's piece:
People do what they feel like doing, and most lawyers feel like doing today what they did yesterday.
