“I post a blog post because it’s tomorrow.”

Seth Godin said he doesn’t post a blog post because he thinks his post is perfect. He posts a blog post because it’s tomorrow.

He made a decision one time to write every day for his blog, so that he doesn’t need to revisit that decision. He has been posting every day on his blog since he made that decision and he has posted more than 7,000 posts since.

I find that inspirational.

I started posting on Linkedin as part of business development for my practice.

I intend to post on Linkedin with consistent frequency. I started posting frequently at the end of 2020 and I have been posting consistently three times per week since June 2021.

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and equity capital markets (ECM) are my key practice areas. I have good intentions to post on M&A topic for a week and then alternate the posts with ECM topic in the subsequent week. I plan to include one post per week on my experience as a lawyer. My Linkedin posts have been on M&A, ECM and lawyering but I could not come up with contents in the sequence I intended.

My intention to compile all my Linkedin posts on my blog MalaysianCorporateLawyer is still a work in progress.

Monday’s post is usually the hardest for me. It is also more challenging to find the peace of mind to write when I am deep in a corporate transaction.

Sometimes I post on technical stuff such as moratorium period for IPO shares of companies seeking for listing on Bursa Malaysia. These posts typically get fewer view compared to my other posts.

My objective is not to reach massive general audience but to reach relevant audience even if it’s smaller. If the posts are helpful for my business development or to anyone else, that’s great. Otherwise, they are my study notes.

Begin with the end in mind: Post-completion integration

I once worked on an M&A deal that took more than a year to complete. While the deal was not inherently complex, it dragged on due to delays in finalizing the details of the transaction agreements for reason beyond my control. As the deal involved a larger corporation acquiring a …

Being a Corporate Lawyer: Why I Do What I Do

After years of demanding schedule and juggling simultaneous corporate exercises which take a toll on physical and mental health, it is not surprising that some corporate lawyers experience burnout. Unlike some legal practice areas, the work of a corporate lawyer may not seem immediately impactful or “make a difference” to …
