Get outside every day. Eat lunch in the park. Go for a walk. Take meetings outside. (While weather permits). Gotta stay sane. Research shows nature helps.

What are your strategies for completing work efficiently? How do you figure out how long projects should take? A consistent piece of feedback on my yearly reviews has been that I over-bill & spend too much time on assignments. It’s something I actively work on, but I still have no concrete sense of how long I should spend on basic tasks (e.g., drafting a motion to dismiss). My firm is right to expect that I manage my time better as a mid-level associate. WFH has made my time management worse.

It seems political. What are your thoughts?
