Boost Productivity by Slowing Down a Little

You’re an unstoppable legal machine. You churn through a hundred pages of briefs and legal research every day. You’re running two phones, a tablet, a laptop and a portable fax machine off a light pole at the airport. Your inbox is an email volcano. You’ve heard of people who go for zero inbox but you figure they’re urban myths like Bigfoot. Your productivity is relentless. Which is great for the bottom line. When your billable hours are like a red-hot furnace propelling your firm's success train at 100 mph down a track that leads to profit, it might be hard to see how backing off the throttle will get you there faster.
