This post is from the first blog I started, called “How to Start a Law Firm.” Over the years I’ve moved to different sites a few times and wanted to catalog all of my content in one place. If an article refers to a link and there is no link, sorry, that’s consequence of the move. Enjoy!
Every day I sit at my desk or I’m at the gym or I’m doing whatever I’m doing and I’ll think about the lack of progress that I’ve made on this Starting a Law Firm Book. And today I’ve decided that I’m going to stop thinking and I’m just going to start doing.
My Promise to You is to Have a Book Done by December 31, 2012
The only way we attorneys get anything done is to have a set deadline. And, honestly, the only way we get anything done is if that set deadline comes with some kind of consequences (usually it’s some kind of sanction or the judge yelling at you or having a pissed off client).
With that being said, I’m trying to come up with some kind of consequence. I’m looking for ideas. Got any?
To give you some idea, I’ve made deals with myself in the past where I’d burn a one hundred dollar bill if I didn’t do something in a specific amount of time. That works, but I’d rather do something that gives you some benefit if I don’t hold up my word.
Let me know your ideas in the comments.
My Thoughts for a “Motivational Primser”
The first thing I’m thinking of is opening up this valium generic cost site and giving everyone a link that wants one if I don’t get it done in time. Or, maybe easier for you and for me – a free link for each and every one of the subscribers to my newsletter. Right now that sounds pretty good, and is probably where I’m leaning.
What do you think?
Want Free Glimpses Into the Book?
It’s really easy – just sign up for the newsletter! The great thing about the newsletter is it’s free. All you have to provide is your name and email address (right up there on the right). And, in addition to those free chapters, you’re going to get my monthly income numbers. Wondering if I’m making money like I think I am, if my tactics are working out in the real world? All you have to do is subscribe.
Looking forward to hearing from you and working with you in the near future. As always, thanks for reading.
P.S. – I’m writing the outline for the book at this exact moment and I wanted to point out the main reason I’m writing this book – nothing like it exists. And it’s exactly what I would have like to have had when I started. I’m not just going to tell you about the things you should do or think about when putting your law firm together, I’m going to give you my real world examples. I’m actually going to give it context. Don’t miss out, sign up for the newsletter. I guarantee you you’ll be happy you did.
