Regular readers of my blog and articles on slaw.ca will know that I am a major advocate for dedicating time on a weekly basis for thinking and planning activities related to your own practice development or that of your practice group or firm.
I just have to share a great blog post from Mike Baker on the Attorney At Work site this morning about the importance of working on your practice rather than in your practice.
When you are working in your practice you are caught up in the day-to-day business of answering emails, working billable hours, meeting client deadlines, and business development activities. When you work on your practice you are taking time to think about the big picture – where is your practice heading? Where are the opportunities? What changes would you like to make?
Thanks Mike for making for such an elegant case in favour of not simply driving but navigating your legal practice.
