A day in the life of a lawyer is not all books, papers, and court hearings. Due to the rapid evolution in technology, the legal industry is adapting (slowly, but surely). You are now connected everywhere you go, at any time, anywhere in the world. Find out what a day in the life of a lawyer can be like and use it to your advantage. Here are our top 3 ways to make sure your airport layovers are productive so you can keep those billable hours rolling on in while traveling!
1. Find A Quiet Spot
Airports are full of people, noise, and loud speaker announcements. If you are serious about completing work, finding yourself a quiet spot, away from people and noise, is absolutely critical to your productivity levels. A great investment if you travel frequently are the Bose Noise Cancelling headphones. Plug these in and never worry about noise EVER again!
2. Get The Hard Stuff Done First
It is often so easy to turn to the easy stuff to complete first. Get out of that habit! Successful business owners, entrepreneurs and all rounders develop the habit of doing the painful things first. Make this part of your daily mantra, especially if you are on the go.
3. Always Be Prepared
The internet has created a world where everyone is connected all the time. Not in town for a meeting? All you need to do is hop on a Skype video call. While unbrushed teeth, bed hair, and sweat pants can often be a sign of airport layovers, make sure you are ALWAYS prepared for a last minute video conference call.
