More Time Won’t Solve These Problems

I’ve been teaching time management strategies to lawyers for more than 20 years.

Most attorneys come to our CLEs for tips and strategies – many of which they’ve heard before – like time-blocking, scheduling the whole appointment, turning off notifications, and working in block time.

But all the best tips in the world aren’t going to solve the underlying problems that cause the time to get away from nearly everyone.

So let’s look behind the curtain at the real issues. You’re going to have to address those if you want to get better at “time management” so you can ultimately find happiness and satisfaction in your work.

The deeper issues fall neatly into 6 categories:

  1. Attitude and Mindset around time, change, and getting stuff done.
  2. Strategy and Planning.
  3. Setting Priorities
  4. Scheduling
  5. Focusing
  6. Delegating

Ready for the quiz?

Use the attached self-assessment to grade yourself in each category. And then pick a single area to work on each month – one at a time.

Work on the underlying issues and you’ll be on your way to giving yourself the time freedom you crave.
