The end of one year and the start of another is a classic time to reflect upon one’s personal and professional life and one that attorneys should not pass up.
As part of your New Year’s resolutions, strive to improve an aspect of your legal or business skills. Maybe it’s time to delve into a new practice area, or start blogging, or try advertising, or network more to get more (or better) types of clients.
Maybe your resolutions are more concrete: raise your rates; lower your uncollectables; even dump a specific case.
Don’t let your professional resolutions meet the same goal many personal ones do, though. Stick at it and next thing you know, you’re find you’ve accomplished your goal.
Good luck and Happy New Year!
