Hey New York litigators, isn’t it awesome how much control we have over our schedules and how easy it is to have a wonderful work/life balance? Wait, what? You DON’T feel that way?
My fellow attorneys, we work too hard. We worked hard to get into law school and we worked hard to graduate. We worked hard to pass the New York bar exam, we worked hard to get our first job and we worked hard to get our job after that. Now, we all have been to court a few times and learned a few things. And yet, we still have our share of challenges.
If you’re like every other New York attorney I know, you’re dealing with discourteous adversaries, relentless judges and competition for the best clients. Years ago you probably had this awesome vision of the lifestyle that being a lawyer would support: gigantic penthouse apartments, designer suits, and cocktails in elegant Manhattan hotel bars adorned with leather-bound books and the smell of money. But now you’re questioning when you’re going to finally be able to take that beautiful vacation you envisioned.
If you can relate to what I just wrote, this blog is meant for you. Here you’ll find tips from the best experts that will help you save time, reduce stress, and help make being a New York lawyer a little easier.
Here’s the very first time-saving tip and it’s one I learned the hard way: delegate everything except your greatest strengths. No one excels at everything. May I suggest you take a few moments to think about what your greatest strengths are and delegate everything else to someone who has the time and skills that you don’t have.You can probably delegate a lot more than you are right now and I promise that it will help you get back a lot of your time.
So, what is one of your favorite time-saving tips? I’m excited to hear your thoughts and look forward to going on this journey with you.
