    For most practitioners, time is money. Yet many attorneys find themselves unable to cultivate the time management strategies they need to succeed.

    Ask yourself, do you or are you:
    • Punctual- do you find you are often in a rush or late completing projects?
    • Plan- do you begin projects early enough to have time to plan and brainstorm?
    • Delegate- do you know what tasks can be delegated to others and how to delegate with skill?
    • Goal-oriented- do you create well-defined goals and understand how to prioritize?

    These traits aren't just aspirational for Tennessee lawyers, they are required for consistent compliance with the Tennessee Rules of Professional Conduct for attorneys. Under the Rules, attorneys are required to be prompt, diligent and thorough in their preparation and representation. Rules 1.3 and 1.4 mandate that attorneys are diligent in their representation of a client, and that those same clients be kept informed in a timely manner. And, at least in Tennessee, these professional requirements are taken very seriously. Historically, over half of all complaints filed by the public against Tennessee attorneys relate to responding to clients in a timely manner and without undue delay.

    And, for attorneys, getting a handle on time and focus management issues means not only staying in compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct, but it also means we:
    • Have more energy
    • Don’t procrastinate
    • Don’t get bogged down in perfectionism
    • Are more decisive
    • Say “NO” and “YES” to the right things

    Sharpen your saw, work smarter and take an inventory of your own time and focus management strategies. Learn more about how to improve not only your own approach to managing time but also how to better mentor and lead others at your firm or organization on this topic.
