No one seems to have enough time these days to get everything done, so it is more important than ever to leverage the time you do have and make it more efficient. One way to do this is to set up an automated client intake process so that you gather all of the information you need to make an acceptance decision without sacrificing your valuable time. Busy lawyers and executives can do this manually by creating questionnaires and checklists for their support staff, or they can use an automated system to do the work for them.
If the COVID-19 pandemic taught the world anything, it is the importance of being able to work virtually, if necessary. Busy executives and lawyers can become more mobile by storing their important documents on the cloud, taking advantage of appropriate apps, and using a case management system that can be accessed through mobile technology.
Busy people (such as executives and lawyers) sometimes lose connections with friends and others around them. However, having personal connections with others can help prevent burnout and remind them of their value so they do not get overwhelmed with the daily minutiae of their work. Setting a goal of calling one friend once a week can help maintain these all-important relationships. Additionally, consider ways to creatively reconnect through Zoom or socially distanced in-person gatherings. The world has had to adapt quickly to connecting effectively with others during a global pandemic. Make sure that you take time to intentionally connect with those you care about.
Today, there are distractions in every direction. Between cell phone alerts, the Internet, and a general environment that blurs the line between work and home, most people feel overwhelmed and overstimulated most of their lives. For some people, the only realistic way to pause these distractions is to literally unplug the television, the laptop, the cell phone, and other electronic devices. If this is not quite possible, you can create specific boundaries, such as no electronic devices at dinner time. This gives you the chance to unwind and reconnect after a busy day. Charlene Gisele can give you other tips on how to unwind and be centered in your daily activities through her holistic approach and tips on self-care.
