Top 12 Law Practice Management and Productivity Tips of 2019 (So Far)

By Joan Feldman

Which articles have captured Attorney at Work readers’ attention during the first half of 2019? Perhaps it says something about our collective state of mind to learn that tips focused on getting a grip — whether on our psyche, our work life, our projects or the general chaos in our offices — struck a chord.

In the most popular post (so far), Jay Harrington focuses on the keys to real, meaningful productivity and lists 10 things you should stop doing:

“Every day presents myriad choices that you must grapple with. Your success and happiness is contingent on having a clear-minded view of what will bring you closer to the outcomes you desire, and what will take you farther away.”

Here are the most popular practice management and productivity posts we published between January and June. (Stay tuned for the year’s top marketing posts coming soon.)
