As a lawyer, you, like me, probably have more on your plate than you can handle. Whether at Big Law, as an in-house lawyer, or running a solo practice, we all have the same concern: too much work, too little time. It can all get a little overwhelming. Whatever your situation, you’re looking for ways to increase your efficiency and productivity while still maintaining some semblance of sanity.
In today’s knowledge economy, productivity is no longer measured simply by the volume of work produced divided by time invested. We live in a world of distractions that rob our attention and drain our energy. Being productive requires us to manage our time and work with focus and optimal energy. Productive Counsel is your resource to help you learn about productivity in a holistic way, emphasizing all three prongs: time-management, attention, and energy.
Hi, I’m Sapna. With close to fifteen years as a lawyer, I’ve worked in every environment possible – the big law firm, the tiny in-house department at a start-up, in a solo practice, as a freelancer, and finally a large in-house law department at a public company. While the work may have looked different at all these places, one thing has remained constant: There is never enough time or energy to get it all done.
In the past, I’ve limited my public writing to LinkedIn, where I mainly focused on SaaS contracts. Sometimes, I threw in an occasional productivity post or #lunchtimecontractingtip, both of which were surprisingly popular. My growing fascination with productivity, however, prompted me to start Productive Counsel.
I’m by no means an expert, but I love learning about productivity and self-improvement. I’m very excited to share what I’ve learned thus far and take you on my journey into future learning. My vision is to have Productive Counsel be the go-to resource and community for busy lawyers such as yourself to learn how to be more productive and efficient at work and in their personal lives.
