How Every Lawyer Can Get More Done in Less Time

“We don’t rise to the level of our expectations. We fall to the level of our training” – Archilochus

You are driven and determined.

You are used to being successful.

And you’d like to make more, in less time so you can have more fun.

Yet something’s in the way – like a barrier that you can’t see.

It seems like there is never enough time to get everything done.

Everything takes longer than you expect.

It feels like your only option is to work longer, and faster, and harder.

So you do – and it still isn’t enough.

Smashing through the barrier requires something you didn’t learn in law school or in any CLE program.

You need what they teach in business schools and to entrepreneurs. It’s the training to create simple, repeatable principles and procedures – a framework of operating systems to run the business of your practice.

Then it’s practicing business disciplines until they become a habit – and then continually testing, refining, and improving so your business works for you – not the other way around.

When you use a systematic approach to the business of your practice you’ll have the momentum you need to smash through the barriers that hold you back.

Start with your system for managing your time, your attention, and your energy – because everything is built on that foundation.

What do you need to practice?

Stay in action on that one thing (one at a time).

Be consistent – it takes time.

Manage your energy – you can’t actually manage time.

Be resilient – falling on your face is part of the process. Get up. Keep going.
