[Appearance] Answering Legal Recommends Stop Putting Our Fires
Answering Legal has released its list of “11 Books Every Lawyer Should Read,” and Stop Putting Out Fires is among them. The article also contains a conversation with each of the authors. Here is a snippet of my interview:
What are some of the biggest time management mistakes you see lawyers making today?Jeremy: “I’ll speak for myself here – being disorganized. In fact just yesterday, I spent a couple of hours updating the spreadsheet that tells me the status and next steps of all the matters in my caseload.
When I’m disorganized, my stress levels are higher, I work less efficiently, and I’m more apt to make a mistake or miss a deadline.
I am a much better manager of my time when I make the effort to approach each week with a to-do list and goals for what I need to accomplish.”
