Lack of effective time management habits can decrease a lawyer’s overall effectiveness and cause stress at home and at work. Managing Multiple Priorities will help you to focus on “what matters most;” increase personal productivity and maintain work/life balance.
You can tell a person's true priorities by looking at their calendar and their checkbook. How we decide to spend our time is a function of what we really value the most. The roles and expectations that we have accepted in life should drive the goals we set and the tasks we place on our daily "To Do" list. Managing time is, therefore, really a matter of controlling the "events" of our lives that will contribute most to our overall productivity.
