If you are among the 45% who typically make a New Year’s Resolution, I genuinely wish you the best of luck.
If your goals for 2013 include any of the following:
Reducing your stress level
Improving your office routines
Streamlining office systems
Balancing the demands of work and home
then resolve to get a head start by “spring cleaning” your
office systems and work habits. Remember, you can always contact the Oregon Attorney Assistance Program if you are feeling overwhelmed. The OAAP can give you guidance on how to develop your own stress management program using deep relaxation, meditation, time management, and other proven stress-reducing techniques. Best of all, OAAP services are free and confidential. Similarly, the Professional Liability Fund Practice Management Advisors provide free and confidential assistance with office systems. Give us a call! 800-452-1639 Toll-Free in Oregon or 503-639-6911.

Take this procrastination self-test from It’s About Time, by Dr. Linda Sapadin with Jack Maguire:
Do you put off taking care of important things, jeopardizing relationships, career, finances, or health?
Do you put off doing what you need to do until a crisis develops?
Do you put off doing tasks unless you can do them perfectly or until you can find the perfect time to do them?
Do you hesitate taking necessary action because you fear change?
Do you think too much about things you’d like to do but rarely get around to doing them?
Do you think that things will somehow just take care of themselves?
Do you commit yourself to so many things that you can’t find time for many of them?
Do you tend to do only what you
want to do instead of what you should do? Do you tend to do only what you think you
should do instead of what you want to do?
If you answered yes – to any of the above – contact the
Oregon Attorney Assistance Program attorney counselors. The OAAP offers confidential assistance to Oregon lawyers and judges who are struggling with procrastination. Read more about the paralysis of procrastination here.
