The Busyness Trap: How to Reduce Overload and Create Space for Things that Matter  
Wednesday, November 3, 2021 12:00 PM Central (CST) - 1:00 PM Central (CST)
Online

Topic: The Busyness Trap: How to Reduce Overload and Create Space for Things that Matter

The emphasis on long work hours and "presenteeism" continue to prevail in the legal industry. Being busy tends to be equated with success, productivity and commitment. But when you're in the busyness trap, you are less able to do high-quality work, think creatively, and solve problems with the greatest impact and least resistance. In this presentation, you will learn effective ways to: Cultivate productive habits by focusing on your top priorities, limiting your to-dos, keeping a startup and shutdown routine, and matching your tasks to your energy cycles; Tackle the problem of facetime cultures and 24/7 accessibility by setting realistic expectations and healthy boundaries; Collaborate and communicate in moderation without having emails, phone calls, meetings and interruptions take over your day; and Take restful breaks and regain lost momentum on important projects.
