Attorneys Growth & Enrichment
TACKLE THE HARD STUFF FIRST.
On any given day, your most difficult, repugnant task is the one you will push to the bottom of your to-do list. This is natural: human beings—even the most mature, responsible ones—put things off. No one likes to lose, attorneys least of all. Ironically, big, complex tasks seem to become even more big and complex when they are left unattended. In a profession already filled with stress, the anxiety produced by procrastinating causes strength-sapping distraction and dissipates energy. It produces worry that can spill over into your personal life.
You know you are capable. You conquered law school, vanquished the bar exam, and set up your own practice. Attack rather than avoid the difficult problem, and do it early in the day if possible. This gives you the strength and confidence to easily take on lesser problems.
