Four ideas: 1. Learn to dictate. Will triple the speed with which you can generate drafts. 2. Delegate everything you can delegate. 3. Because it takes 20 mins to regain concentration after an email or other interruption, don’t work with email alerts turned on or an email screen open. Instead, schedule extended times for concentrated work (in a conference room if need be) and deal with email at scheduled intervals. 4. Avoid the tyranny of the urgent by prioritizing the most important thing first.

Find out when your mind is sharpest. For me it is early morning, others it is late at night etc and schedule your toughest tasks (eg a tough brief) for those times. Handle easier tasks in lulls between your more efficient time or after or before those peak productivity hours.

Put blocks in your schedule so you can estimate how long something will take you to draft. For me, once a block starts I ignore everything else (no email alerts, no chat windows) and just get down to work. Close your door and make sure nobody interrupts you. That way your billable hours actually reflect the work you did and not mind wandering time .

Just found out that 2 ACDs are making the same salary as me. I’ve busted my ass to get where I am, but have worked my way up rather than job hopping. How pissed should I be?

Got myself a RTX 2080ti GPU and none of my friends care but I’m assuming there’s some people on this bowl who knows what that is and can be happy for me :)

I am about to transition from being a junior partner at a large law firm (my practice has focused on private equity M&A) to Deputy General Counsel at a large-ish Pubco. I am already giving myself a crash course in public securities and corporate governance from my firm’s training materials and my cap markets partners, but I also wanted to poll the audience for other suggestions on how to become as prepared as possible for my new role please. Thanks in advance!
