How to Overcome Overwhelm and Get Things Done in the New Year [LGE 041]

Dec 19, 2018 | Podcast

As the year winds down, it’s common for many us lawyers to look back on the year and feel discouraged by all that we thought we would accomplish but didn’t. While it’s important to focus on what you did accomplish, admittedly, it can be overwhelming to reflect on all that is left to do. In this episode, I get a little personal and share how I was able to overcome some of the obstacles I encountered this year when it came to completing tasks.

What I Share in this Episode:

  • How you can best keep track of all the ethics rules changes that took effect in 2018
  • Patrick Palace’s town hall meetings and how they’re moving the profession forward
  • Erin Gerstenzang’s data-driven ethics project
  • What is California’s Legal Tech Task force meant to accomplish?
  • The one thing I accomplished this weekend that was a total game changer for my practice
  • The amazing feeling of finally completing a task that has been on your To Do list for a long time
  • Why getting things done might be simpler than you expected
