Are You Proscrastinating While Reading This Post? Thought You Might Be…

David Maister and one of my internet buddies, Wendy Leibowitz coauthored this post on proscrastination and offer tips on ways to avoid avoidance.  They identify surfing the internet as an avoidance habit and suggest that if you can stop that habit for just ten minutes, you can begin to get yourself back on track.  These tips are especially important for work alone solos because we’ve got no one but ourselves (and our deadlines) to keep us accountable.

For me, blogging – both reading and writing them – is my own personal work-day time sink.  It’s just too easy to immerse, following links deeper and deeper into the “blog fog,” with no way out.  My new rule, effective as of two months ago, is simply not to blog during the work day.  I’ll blog at night (as I am now) or after my daughters are home from school when I can’t really work.  And as long as I can discipline myself to this schedule (I briefly fell off the wagon last week when I hadn’t been able to post for a while), I do find that I get more work done.

7 Ways Practice Management will Help You Get a Head Start in 2018

When you’re able to accomplish more in less time, everyone wins. Your clients will get more for each billable hour they invest in you, and you’ll make more money. A lot more. Consider this: If a lawyer, who charges $365 an hour (the median rate for a consumer law attorney[1]), bills one extra hour per week, they will earn an additional $18,980 annually.
